"Hey, when you get home, I'd like to talk to you about this," he says, holding up the bottle—which, by the way, happens to be nearly empty. "I don't know if this is something that fell out of a sock, because it was in your sock drawer. We heard a news report of people breaking into houses and hiding whiskey bottles. So, if that's the case, then we need to contact police."
"But if you've got another explanation," he continues. "Maybe you can explain it to us when you get home. Love you, girl. Bye."

I love the way this dad so smoothly handled such a tricky situation! He's totally my #ParentingGoals hero!

Now her father has become a viral sensation, and his video has been retweeted more than 10,000 times and liked nearly 21,000 times!
Cheers to you, dad!
