A Utah dad intending to teach his daughter a lesson about appropriate apparel has sent his educational message far beyond.
A photograph posted on the family’s blog of him sporting a pair of very short shorts in public last month went viral, drawing thousands of views, news coverage, and comments like, “You are the best Dad ever!”
Dad dons short shorts to teach teen a lesson in appropriate attire. Did your parents teach you lessons in weird ways? http://t.co/JySPufd8no—

“In our family we have pretty definite modesty guidelines,” Scott Mackintosh wrote on the blog in an explanation after the photograph went viral. “I’m a firm believer that the way we dress sends messages about us, and it influences the way we and others act.”
