Ahhh, the school years. Some people remember it as the best years of their life. If you are a parent you will certainly be able to relate to this. If you are a student, I bet you have heard your father go over this speech many times. The discussion over which school-era has been the best has been controversial for generations. I remember my father telling me all those stories from the time he was a kid.
He grew up without a father, so life was rough. He was bullied at school at a time when bullying was considered a part of life. He would tell me that he had to toughen up or the bullies would eat him alive. He had to hustle to get his own food because he was studying at a boarding school. You know, those schools where you live and study and have crappy food. The only thing is that he didn’t have any money and it wasn’t like he was getting an allowance.
By the time I was going to school, he used to tell me that I had it good. There used to be a time when a teacher was a figure of respect. Even parents, they were very much respected. Think about how Asian countries still view their elders today. It was something along those lines. My father would tell me that young people nowadays are very disrespectful. Ok, maybe some of them really are.
Brad Howard was having teacher complaints about his son. Mainly it was about him talking in class. He had warned him about it and decided to issue an ultimatum: either he gets his act together, or he would sit-in next to him in his class. Nothing could be more embarrassing for his son that having to endure teases all day for having his “daddy” with him. Unfortunately, this was not enough to deter his son of his wrongdoings. So, the Texas father and pastor would go to his school and try to embarrass his son as much as he could!
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 Sr. said. When he showed up to class, Bradley’s friends thought it was a joke. Bradley Jr., however, was not laughing. Bradley’s sister also thought everything was hilarious. She texted a photo of her dad and brother sitting together and eventually tweeted it.
“Just making good a promise,” Brad Sr. tweeted back. This is when the photo went viral. It even caught the attention of talk show host Montel Williams. The TV host responded to the tweet, “This is awesome!!! One dad to another well done ;).” Watch how everything went down!
