If anyone knows how to properly respond to unsolicited back-seat parenting advice, it's Steve Rold. 

Rold, father of two, took to Reddit with a hilarious rebuttal to his daughter's daycare staff suggesting he dress his daughter more like a girl. 

Rold explained that despite the comment, he still loves his daycare facility.  

“Whether it’s a cultural or a generational thing, we completely understand that they were just trying to be helpful,” Rold told “Maybe they thought that it hadn’t crossed our minds to dress our daughter any differently or perhaps they just didn’t want to answer a million questions from the other kids at the daycare as to why our baby isn’t dressed in pink and flowers. The suggestion was actually pretty mild but it was piled onto a hundred other similar ones that I’m sure all parents get so my wife just felt the need to push back a tiny bit.”

Since the post was published to Reddit, dozens of other parents have shared similar experiences. Read more here.
