You can help your father in multiple ways. But the most important way you can help your father (even your mother), is by being kind to him, not raising your voice, speaking softly, putting across your view, your requirement in a respectful manner. They do so much for us and it is our right to treat them nicely. Assist them financially. If you are living far away, give them the regular phone calls, show that you love your parents. This is what matters in the end. Dont do what wrong they have done to you. Instead, do it right. Be the better person, someone your children can admire and learn from.

Be a good son/daughter and do whatever you can to help him. Let him know that you'll be there to support him no matter what. And make sure you stay in touch with him often as he will really appreciate the effort you're making to continue talking to him. Be completely honest with him about the way you feel and open up to him about your own problems so that he may open up to you about his. He is your father, so just do what you can to make him happy, and let him know that you're always going to have his back no matter what.
