Father's Day

Challenge Details

In the interests of parental parity (and because lots of Our Heroes (tm) went on to become fathers), you are challenged to write a story about the stories and advice that dear old Dad always has ready to dole out.

The story must meet these criteria:

1. It must be a private moment between father and child(ren).
2. It must involve a formal element of verbal exchange (advice, telling stories (and sort, bedtime included), warnings, "you are a wo/man today", "when I was your age," etc.) between father and child(ren), no matter how casual the tone of interaction. No wholly inner monologues.

Fathers of all Ages (and ages) are acceptable, as are foster/adoptive fathers. No PoV restrictions, save for those implied by criterion 1.
