We've all had those awkward moments with our parents, but this dad's attempt to educate his daughter about proper disposal of period pads took a cringe-worthy turn. When 38-year-old 'no_disk8160' discovered his 10-year-old daughter Chloe's used pad in the toilet, he decided to address the issue himself, without waiting for his wife to return home. Little did he know, his well-intentioned talk would lead to a family disagreement and a very embarrassed young girl. 😳🚽
