12 Ways Lebanese Fathers Show Love

Whether it’s tough love or pure love, it’s still love. These are the unique ways in which Lebanese fathers tell their kids that they love them.

Editorial Purpose: We are sharing this piece of content to garner a few laughs and bond over the many things we have in common.

1. Teaching you how to drive before you can walk

2. Buying you junk food that your mom would never let in the house

…but really it’s for him.

3. Threatening to kick you out of the house if you don’t get a job

4. Getting you thoughtful gifts on your birthday

…but really they’re from your mom.

5. Driving you around everywhere before you get your license

6. Sending vague messages over WhatsApp


7. Saying ‘ask your mom’ when you ask him if you can go out

It’s because he really wants to say yes but he also doesn’t want your mother to kill you both.

8. Teaching you how to play Tawleh

But it’s really because he wants a guaranteed Tawleh life partner.

9. Incessantly telling you that he graduated at the top of his class

This does not mean that he graduated at the top of his class, but rather that he expects you to fulfill that dream for him.

10. Letting you stay up late when you were a kid to watch movies with him

11. Comparing himself to your friends’ dads

“Shu byeshteghel beyyo?”

12. Trying to be cool in front of your friends

Can you relate?
