14 Things To Thank Your Dad For Doing When You Were A Child

Your father is the most important man in your life.

He's the first man you encounter, and your interactions with and feelings for him will impact every relationship you'll ever have with another human being.

It's pretty heavy stuff, but more often than not, it's also pretty awesome — especially when you have an amazing dad.

Your dad does more for you than any other dude ever will, and a lot of times dads can be so rad that you don't even realize all the incredible ways your father has loved and cared for you.

Here are a few things you've probably taken for granted and need to thank your dad for immediately:
