Parenting is hard. Really hard. There are some times when you just don’t know what to do or want some help. You find this happens more and more often as your kids get older. You thought the terrible twos were bad… Just wait for the terrible teens! But this dad knows how to teach a life lesson.
This dad was upset at some of his daughter’s purchases. Specifically, the purchase of a pair of shorts. She had bought them earlier in the day, but her dad wasn’t happy with them. The shorts themselves were fine, but it was their length that annoyed him. Or the lack of length.
Jason Hilley of Orlando, Florida couldn’t fathom how short his daughter’s new shorts were. Kendall, his daughter, can’t see anything wrong with her latest purchase, but at least she has a sense of humor about it all.
Her brother, on the other hand, was cracking up at their dad’s prank. And mom Alison was struggling to contain her laughter, too. Because dad Jason had donned his own pair of daisy dukes to ask Kendall if she thought they were too short for him? In all fairness to her, when Kendall put her shorts on they were comfortably longer than her dad’s. And she rocked them better, too.
But what are you to do as a parent if you don’t agree with something your child is wearing? Would you stop them from wearing it and fitting in with all their friends and peers? Or would you let them do whatever they want? Making a joke out of it seems like the good middle ground, especially as they are only shorts.
It seems the internet liked this dad’s joke, too. The video has been watched over 38 million times on Facebook. Let us know what you thought, and share with your family and friends. You can check out similar stories on Happiest, like this one about a talented older gent.
