Utah Dad Wears Short Shorts To Teach Daughter About Modesty

Scott MacKintosh seen here in the short shorts that were meant to teach his teenage daughter about modesty.

A Utah dad made a "small" change to teach his daughter a big lesson about modesty.

Fed up with his daughter's love for short denim shorts, Scott Mackintosh, a father of seven from Salt Lake City, left the house for a family outing in a pair of very short shorts after the teenager refused to change into something more modest.

"I heard my wife ask our daughter if she would please change into some longer shorts before leaving. She said 'NO!'" MacKintosh wrote on his wife's blog. "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 took a pair of old jeans and cut them so short that the whites of the pockets were hanging out. At first, his daughter did not notice his new look. When she did, she played it off like she didn't care, he said.

The father talked to NBC's Mike Taibbi about his agenda behind the shorn jeans.

"I was absolutely going for shock value and a little bit of embarassment," he said in a segment that appeared on the Today show.

The embarrassment finally sank in when the family stopped for milkshakes and she refused to leave the car.

"We went in, but she stayed in the car. She had had enough and did not want to go through any further embarrassment," he wrote.

MacKintosh's wife and other kids, however, were not daunted by his fashion statement. Photos that they snapped went viral after they posted it online, prompting MacKintosh to write about the full story on his wife's blog.

Very creative!  No sense in fighting when you can provide an in-person object lesson!

Father and daughter were interviewed Friday night on Greta... cute daughter and she said she learned from it as well as got a kick out of her dad being so bold...
