Teen Makes Teacher’s Life Miserable So Dad Comes To Class And Teaches Him A Lesson

Most parents recognize the fact that children are going to misbehave from time to time. They do it when they are home and sometimes, they do it when they are in school. In fact, it seems as if some children live to give their teachers a hard time and it is nothing new. Teens have been doing this for years but that doesn’t stop the fact that parents still are bothered by any misbehavior from their teenage children. Every once in a while, it gets to be too much and a parent decides to step in and do something about it.

This is the situation that Brad Howard found himself in. His son was given plenty of warnings about giving his teacher a hard time but he just continued to do it. The warning came from the school, but it also came from the father. His father said that if the child didn’t straighten up, then he was going to be embarrassed because his father was going to come with him to class. When the complaints continued to come in from the son’s physics teacher, the Texas father decided it was time to do something about it. His son, Bradley, was provided with a final warning.

“For some reason, I said, ‘Hey, if we get another call, I’m going to show up in school and sit beside you in class,” Brad said.

We may have heard similar threats when we were children and our parents probably never followed through on it. I’m sure that this 17-year-old thought that his father was joking as well. When another email came home from the teacher, however, the father decided to make good on his threat and attend school that day.

“My wife wakes me up and says, ‘Brad, it’s time for you to go to school.’ I thought, ‘Oh, no, what have I done?’” Brad said.

The father came to school that day. His classmates thought that it was the funniest thing they had ever seen. The teen was not finding the humor in what was taking place. Molli is his sister also thought it was funny. She sent a text message with a picture of her dad sitting in class and it showed up on Twitter.


“Just making good a promise,” Brad tweeted back.

The picture went viral. It even ended up on the Montel Williams talkshow with him saying, “This is awesome!!! One dad to another well done ;).”

There were also many people on social media who thought the teen had a great father. They still wanted to make sure he was getting the point.

“The Howard men are famous,” said Bradley’s mom, Denise Howard. “We’ve had a great time with this but more than anything we hope we don’t get any more calls about Bradley interrupting in physics class!”

Sometimes giving discipline with a twist is the best way to go. Check out this video for more:
