After receiving numerous complaints from Brad Howard’s teacher, dad finally decided he needed to take matters into his own hands. Instead of disciplining the boy at home, which he had tried numerous times and it never worked, dad came up with a new idea. On Friday, Brad’s father came to school and sat in with Brad during his high school physics class. You can imagine how embarrassed Brad must have been to be seen with his father in school.
This Texas father knew that this punishment would make his 17-year-old son rethink his bad behavior. Do you think it will work?
Brad doesn’t think he is a bad kid. Admittedly, he is just way too talkative for school. Dad is usually proud of his son’s confidence and his ability to strike up a conversation with anyone and everyone. But in school, he was sick and tired of getting complaints about his teenager’s bad behavior.
Brad was interviewed by Buzzfeed News and said, “I like to talk a lot, and so my teacher kept emailing my dad about it.”
Brad’s dad explained with a smile on his face that Brad “likes to be the life of the party, which gets him in trouble from time to time.”
The idea that Brad’s dad would come to class with him was a spontaneous punishment.
His dad explained: “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,’” he said.
Unfortunately, Brad failed to keep his mouth shut while the teacher was teaching. That meant daddy was coming to class with him.
“Friday is my only day off,” his dad said.
His wife woke him up early because Brad has misbehaved yet again. Dad immediately regretted making the threat because he didn’t want to waste his day off on his son.
“Oh no, what have I done?” Brad’s dad said when his wife was waking him up.
When Brad got into his physics class, he didn’t even noticed his father until the man was breathing down his neck.
“I didn’t even notice him until after I had said hi to all of my friends, but I was super shocked,” Brad said.
But Brad’s dad was having a hard time, too. Suddenly, he remember all the times he got in trouble for talking to friends in high school.
“Mentally I hadn’t prepared to go into a situation like that.”
Every member of Brad’s family loved watching both dad and Brad squirm in physics class. While dad thought the punishment would really embarrass Brad, it was just as hard for dad because he felt awkward around all the teenagers.
Brad’s sister posted a picture of his father in the physics class with a grimace on his face.

She also shared the following caption: “My dad told my brother if he got another call from the physics teacher complaining he would go sit in his class.. dad got another call.”
Not only that, but Brad’s sister Mollie attached the picture and texted her mom the following: “Dad told B2 if we get another complaint about his behavior from his Physics teacher that he was going to sit in class with him. We got a call yesterday so here is dad this morning!!!!”
Do you think that this was a good way to punish the bad boy?
