Friday's Feedback at 5:00:

It's an age old battle: parents and their kids fighting over fashion trends.

A father in Utah says his teenage daughter was embarrassing him with how short her shorts were, so he decided to teach her a lesson.

Scott Mackintosh took photos of himself after taking a pair of scissors to some jeans, making his own short shorts, complete with his "best dad ever" t-shirt.

Scott took his family, including his daughter, out to dinner to prove a point, and the photos went viral.

His daughter says she just felt embarrassed "for him."

For tonight's Feedback at Five, what do you think of this man's parenting approach? What out of the ordinary ways have you taught your own lessons?
