Briefly.co.za conducted an interesting online survey to gauge the impact of Mzansi’s fathers. We asked our readers to reveal some of the key lessons their dads taught them.
Although Women’s Day is fast approaching, Briefly.co.za decided to change things up a bit with a recent social media post.
We conducted an online survey via Facebook on Sunday to determine the impact of Mzansi’s dads.
The question was simple: “What did your father teach you that made an impact on your life?”
The post attracted more than 100 comments and many South Africans shared some interesting stories on what they were taught.
From being God-fearing to respecting others, it was clear to see the key role played by some fathers.
Khaya Maimane said, “My father taught me to respect all people even those who may not deserve it. He said it says a lot about me than anyone else.”
Cathee Eramus said, “Nothing is for free.All accomplishment comes from hard work and determination.A qualification only make you better than you used to be not better than anyone else. Compete against yourself not others.”
Rachel K Mwesige commented, “I was raised by a single dad pampered and very spoilt and above all he taught me to love God and to be a good person to everyone. His ma gift n i hate seeing him grow old.”
Helen G. Naidoo added, “Always help the poor never bargain with them when they sell things on the street to survive, either give them more and support them whenever you can ...thanks papa you are my hero and first love miss you so much.”
Bridgette Lena Mash said, “He ran away so that taught me to be independent and have room for disappointment.”
