Dads can be very overprotective of their teen daughters, is something I've learned from movies (when I was a teen, the only boys who wanted to talk to me were in Theater Club and my dad wasn't too concerned).

This dad and Twitter user Austin McBroom got an early start on keeping the male species away from his daughter, by teaching his 8-month-old to crawl away whenever a boy approaches. He shared an adorable video on Twitter of the two of them practicing the strategy, and it has gone viral.

Watch and learn, ladies:

"She's only 8months and she already knows...." he wrote in the caption.

Twitter is loving this dad's approach:

And this guy tried to teach his kid the same strategy. It didn't go so well:

But Dads, there's hope! Maybe your kids will grow up into awkward, shy teenagers with braces and year-round allergies who love reading and horses. That helped me avoid boys by having them avoid me, at least until college.
