A dad has been praised for his modern twist on the traditionally strict rules set by a father on dating his daughters.

J. Warren Welch, who is a writer and poet, shared a post on social media simply captioned 'I ain't raisin' no princesses."

His rules list that you'll have to ask his daughters "what their rules are."

"I'm not raising my little girls to be the kind of women who need their daddy to act like a creepy possessive badass in order for them to be treated with respect."

"You will respect them, and if you don't, I promise they won't need my help putting you back in your place. Good luck pumpkin."

The dad has five daughters with his wife Natasha, and said in an interview with Today he understands "the urge to protect your daughters".

"I get that. But the kind of posturing by fathers of daughters I was specifically responding to had nothing to do with that 'protective instinct' and everything to do with asserting their dominance over women and reinforcing a belief that women need men to take care of them."
