Last month, a dad in Utah wasn't happy about the short shorts his teenage daughter was wearing...so he tried to embarrass er by making his OWN cut-off jean shorts, and wearing them all over town.  Eventually the photos of him got online, and he says his daughter HAS started dressing a bit more appropriately.
