    Father and son: Respect, discipline, inspiration, fun, education
    3.
    Father and son relationship, for me, is a relationship where the father has to show the kid the basics of life so he can grow up as a good person and with a good attitude and discipline. The son will admire his dad for everything he does and will learn from it and the father will know he has done a good job and will be proud. Also, this relationship is based on having fun with each other and, while making his son happy, the father will be happy.
