Flashback: Dad Teaches Teen Daughter Dressing Lesson (Must Read For Parents)

An American who became increasingly frustrated with his daughter’s indecent dressing decided to teach her a little lesson.

Scot Mackintosh was fed up with his daughter constantly wearing Daisy Duke-style micro-shorts, he took a pair of scissors to his jeans and cut them crotch-high, so that a pocket peeked from beneath. He then donned a “Best Dad Ever” T-shirt and wore the outfit during a family night out on the town.

“I was absolutely going for shock value and a little bit of embarrassment,” he said.

Instead of turning her response and disrespectful attitude into a major battle, I decided to make a ‘small’ statement on how her short-shorts maybe aren’t as ‘cute’ as she thinks!”

Mackintosh said. “I know the world has varying degrees of what is modest and what is not when it comes to clothing. In our family we have pretty definite modesty guidelines: No mid-drift or low-cut shirts, no short-shorts, short skirts and we even go as far as saying no sleeveless shirts unless playing sports or on the beach. Having raised four daughters and three sons, I’m a bit protective. Some may call me old fashion, but I call it ‘a dad who loves his daughters’ (and sons too). I know some of you may be rolling your eyes and that’s okay, my daughter does it all the time. I’m a firm believer that the way we dress sends messages about us, and it influences the way we and others act.”

His daughter tried to remain stoic all through dinner and a game of mini-golf, but finally broke when they made a stop for milkshakes, refusing to get out of the car with him.

“I just got out of the car, walked in and she says, ‘I’m staying in the car,’” said Mackintosh.

Mackintosh said the entire incident was meant as a gentle way to get his point across.

“There was no ‘Dad, I get it’ or ‘Dad ,you’re the best … thanks for that awesome lesson,” he said.

However, he said his daughter has been better about her choice in shorts.

“I think she’s just aware of my feelings. And sometimes, understanding your parent’s feelings are important,” he said

We think the moral lesson here is for parents to fashion out ways of inculcating discipline and modesty in their children nevertheless the challenge of so called civilization. As Mackintosh rightfully put it, “the way we dress sends messages about us…”
