    The father is a complete asshole, making a major issue over his son's pants.
    The father needs to get his priorities straight.

    done for shock effect, but kinda meh, kind of reminds me of the sort of as of late youtube video genre of dads/parents trying to look all badass cracking down on their kids (e.g. the dad who shot his daughter's laptop).

    I love it!

    They did this to me when I was kid, but in front of company my Uncle and Grandma had over... lesson learned, come in through the back door, and walk really slow... I stopped wearing such flashy clothing/styles in the daytime... but still rock what works for me when I get a chance out, with friends. Dayum... it's been a while since I let that part of me out at all...... I don't do this look particular though*

    I think wearing dumb shit that makes you look retarded is everyone's rightful rite of youth passage. You find out on your own what you need to change and how you are portraying yourself, how others perceive you and how you feel about all of the above. Yes I believe parents should intervene if their children's decisions involve drugs, smoking, drinking, dicking around in school, disrespectful behavior, laziness. But clothes, hair and anything related to personal expression they need to back the fuck up.

    Kudos to the father, in my opinion. But I wish he took greater issue with his son's sagging. (Sagging is bad news for a million reasons. And sagging with skinny jeans is far worse.) Walking around with your pants pulled so low that the world can see your underwear is distasteful. That point should be drilled into the boy's head because the problem will likely remain even if the guy wears jeans that fit more loosely.

    Posting the video on YOUTUBE is an excellent way to teach his son a lesson. Throughout the video the father walks his son through various consequences of his fashion choice.

    I kinda love it!

    Mostly this ... but there is a right way and a wrong way to guide ... this is obviously the wrong way ... but obviously the kid is used to him being a dope, since he is just laughing at him ... I wonder if his father was wear platforms, checkered pants and a huggie bear hat in the 70's

    Agreed, its known as picking your battles. Its one of the most important things to get right when parenting. Get it right and your kids, in time, will come to respect your authority. Get it wrong and they will see you as petty and overbearing and their respect for you will dwindle.

    Kudos to Dad. Not enough parents take a firm stance on much these days. Sure, I do agree somewhat with Ariodante that there are more important things for parents to worry about, but based on the fact that this kid isn't giving attitude or talking back, it tells me that this parent probably has control over his behavior. The way kids dress today is ridiculous and I agree with another member that the father should have more issue with the fact that the son was sagging (though, maybe it was all wrapped up into one issue when he told him to pull them up and he couldn't).

    Funny video. The bane of our existences today. No more privacy, and dick parents doing ineffective disciplining on clueless kids, obviously in this case, bereft of taste. The question is begged, however, as to whether this particular father ever taught his son good taste in the first place, so that when the kid dressed that way, was it not more a function of his lack of being properly raised than whether the kid could do a squat in the jeans?

    Other than that, I agree with Ariodante's comment about picking one's battles and concentrating on the important stuff ("...drugs, smoking, drinking, dicking around in school, disrespectful behavior, laziness..." to which I'd add tattoos and piercings) and leave the "reversible" stuff like hair and clothing up to the kid. Kids have to negotiate the rocky road of peer pressure when in school, and with the hoards of unraised children out there today, the peer pressure is often of the worst kind. However, as long as the kid was taught how to dress properly and will dress appropriately for the adult occasions, let the kid look like a jerk. One is only young once, as the saying goes. Let him do what he thinks he's enjoying!

    A personal aside, as most on this forum are too young to know differently, but I find the whole "pants-low-on-the-hips"-bit highly atavistic, as this was "high fashion" at least with the male junior high set in 1958 and 1959, which had an additional component to it apparently lacking with the current crop of kids: In addition to the logistical problems of getting the pants secured low enough, one had to guard against one's friends coming up behind and giving a downward jerk on the belt loops to test matters, which frequently thus resulted in one being pantsed right in the school hallways. If one were lucky, the jockeys stayed in place; if not, well...!
