This is from a survey of British teenagers but I think you'd get similar responses if you asked American teens.   The Daily Mail survey found that British teenagers stay an average of 22 feet away from their dad in public, because they don't want to be embarrassed.

Here are the five things dads do that embarrass kids the most.

1.  Dancing in public.

2.  Singing in public.

3.  Dressing like a dad.

4.  Telling bad jokes.

5.  Trying to be cool by using young-person slang.
