Who Wears Short Shorts? This Dad Wears Short Shorts!

Myley Mackintosh- Tumblr

I get that the world has changed since I was a teen. I get that there’s more pressure on kids, especially girls, to dress a certain way.  But no matter how much the world changes, I think girls need to be taught to respect their bodies. There’s a fine line between fashionable and flaunting and a girl who flaunts won’t be given the respect she deserves.

I absolutely love Scott Mackintosh of Utah. Scott is a dad to seven kids and one of those kids is a daughter who thought she could pull one over on dad and wear shorts that were WAY too short for his liking when the family went out to dinner even though she was asked to change.

Scott didn’t scream or shout threats.  Nope.  He went to his closet and pulled out a pair of his jeans and cut them WAY too short and pulled out a t-shirt he’d gotten for Father’s Day and wore them out to dinner.

Scott told Deseret News:

I simply did this in hopes that my daughter would know of my great love for her and that she knows of her great worth. Now that it has gone viral, I hope that young women everywhere understand their great worth. I will look like an idiot any day if that point gets across. 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.”
