Parenting is a delicate dance between letting your kid be themselves and teaching them rules for life. One dad has run up against this issue when it comes to his daughter's wardrobe, and he posted on Reddit for help.
The dad says his 14-year-old daughter has been dressing in revealing clothes and he's not a fan. He posted on Reddit asking if he's the a-hole for not wanting to be seen with her.
I don't like the way she dresses. She's 14. Her clothes are too revealing. I've told her this. She says she doesn't care. Fine. Maybe it's a teenager thing. I don't push it.
Saturday comes. Saturday is Father Daughter night - we walk around, talk about everything that happened that week, maybe get some snacks.
I told her she can't walk with me if she's dressed like that. She didn't want to change, so I walked alone. When I came back, my wife told me that she's in her room crying and that I should go talk to her.
