The Ultimate Father’s Day Gift


Hi Scott,

I loved your ‘Ultimate Father’s Day Present’ column so much! My dad, who is 76, lives in WA and I have not seen him for five years. Today I called him to say I am booking a ticket for him to visit us at Christmas (and I will be recording his answers to your questions). As a single parent for over five years living week to week, there was no way I could have done that before. But I have saved, Barefoot style, and now I can! Your advice has changed my world (and my family’s).


Scott's Answer

Hey Maya,

Nice one. (For those of you who missed it, last week I urged readers to whip out their phones and ask their dads some simple questions, like ‘How would you like to be remembered?’)

Tell your dad what you just told me, and it’ll make him proud.

Thank-you for reading.
