Father’s Day is fast approaching (it’s June 21st, so make sure you’ve got your card and pressie at the ready!), and the people of Twitter have taken up a rather novel way of celebrating it – by sharing their father’s favourite sayings with the hashtag #MyDadWouldAlwaysSay.
From time-old sayings to typical dad jokes and lies we’re sure every papa has told their offspring at some point, we’ve rounded up the sweetest (and funniest) dad wisdom the trending topic has to offer – and we bet you’ve heard more than a few of them in your time, whether it’s from your own dad, or your partner telling the kids!
Here are some of the best #MyDadWouldAlwaysSay quotes we’ve seen – how many of these did your dad say to you?

This dad wanted his daughter to reach for the stars (for the new kitchen accessory, if nothing else)
This dad just wants his son to be as happy as he is
But this dad was more interested in trying to get out of paying Mr Whippy
This dad wants his kid to think for himself
And this dad just wants his to BELIEVE in herself
This dad wanted to protect his girl from prying eyes…
Whilst this dad is a pro at tackling difficult monetary demands
These dads are just worried about their energy bills
Seriously, what IS it with dads and the heating?
