When my dad was young, about as young as me, he was: hardworking, responsible, and basically had to be the man of the house. He would go to school, do sports after school, and would work after doing sports. He didn't have a lot of rest in fact he would get an average of 5 hours of sleep a day. You can tell he is hardworking. He needed to help his mom with paying bills and taking care of siblings. They struggled a lot too. He would work night shifts all the time. He wouldn't complain about the things he had to do either. My dad was basically the man of the house/ the father of his siblings because he had to pay the bills, buy food for them to eat, take care of them, and always watching out for them. At such a young age too. The reason for this is because he is the oldest the siblings. My dad also knew so many things a normal teenager wouldn't know. For example he knew how to fix cars, what was wrong with cars, how to build many things like how he built his bike from scratch. My dad was basically a man at the age of 14. He had way too many responsibilities. He has done back in the day for family and many other things. I respect my dad for all the things he has done for my family and for me.
