Father knows best

From changing a tire to grilling the perfect steak, dads are pros at giving practical advice. But sometimes, their tips and life lessons almost seem a little too wacky to be true.

Here are some of the responses submitted to Best Health via Twitter and Facebook. Have some great advice from your dad? Tell us in the comments and we’ll add it to this list!
