Despite the name of the old TV series, fathers don’t always know best. But a lot of times they do.

What is the best advice your dad ever gave you? For Father’s Day, we’d like you to tell about the times fathers got it right.

Send stories and a picture of you and your dad — current or way back when. Be sure to include your full name and age — and your dad’s — your address and daytime phone number. Some will appear in the paper.

Email your submissions to or send to Father’s Day, The Advocate EatPlayLive, 10705 Rieger Road, Baton Rouge, LA 70809. Deadline is June 6.
