The best way to connect with your dad may be through activities he enjoys. Take some time to reflect on the things that make him happy, whether it's tinkering in the garage, cheering on his favorite sports team, or pursuing a beloved hobby. Once you decide what he'd enjoy most, plan an experience that allows you to engage with him and spend quality time in a unique way. It could be as simple as watching a game in the living room, working on a DIY project, or planning an outing centered around his hobbies. Creating quality, uninterrupted time to connect one-on-one will go a long way in making him feel special this Father's Day.
