What are you going to give your father in father's day? Smile
I gave my mother the shoes in mother's day. She was pleased at getting its.
But I have no idea what to give my father.
Please give me advice.

Good for you, givin gyouir mother nice shoes! I'm sure she was very pleased with her gift!

Many people think that choosing a gift for a father is harder than choosing one for a mother. Does your father have any interests? Does he read? Is there a special food he likes? Has he talked about starting a new hobby? Does he like tools or gadgets? Does he own something that is worn out, and needs to be replaced? Does he enjoy being outdoors, or gardening? How about sports--does he have a favorite team?

I hope these questions will give you some good ideas. Let us know what you decide! Good luck!

Thank you for your advice!! Very Happy
My father likes to play baseball. I decided to give him a new glove.
I will buy new gloves in this week.
But I have another problem. I and my father had a quarrel by a trifling thing.
I want to make up a quarrel. How should I apologize?

Everyone has disagreements at times. It's just part of life. I find it's best to talk about what happened, apologize, and get past the angry feelings. Otherwise, people stay mad for a long time, sometimes over something silly.

You could try saying, "Dad, let's talk about that argument. I"d like to apologize, so we can get along again." You can offer an explanation about what happened, if that will help.

Good idea about the baseball glove! I'm sure he will love it!

Thank you. I want to refer to your opinion. I want to tell father to always express gratitude. And I will apologize to father.

I want to play catch with father when I can get along again with father!
Do you play catch?
Because I have not played catch so much, it is unskilled.
