There are still some parents who follow through on their threats, like this dad, Bradley Howard. According to BuzzFeed, Bradley Senior was getting a lot of calls about his son, also named Bradley Howard. No, it wasn't a mix up at the bank—Bradley Howard the Younger was behaving badly in physics class. Badly Bradley.

The daughter of the family, Molli Howard, tweeted a screenshot of a conversation with her family, in which Dad Brad went to sit next to his son in class to make sure he made it through at least one period without acting a fool.

She captioned it, "My dad told my brother if he got another call from the physics teacher complaining he would go sit in his got another call."

The text includes a selfie of dad Bradley Howard next to his son, looking self-satisfied. Bradley Howard the teen told BuzzFeed that he was completely surprised to see his dad waiting for him in the classroom. "I didn't even notice him until after I had said hi to all of my friends, but I was super shocked," he said.

Brad's dad says that his son's crimes were mostly talking in class and disrupting, saying he, "likes to be the life of the party, which gets him in trouble from time to time." Even though he was glad to follow through on his promise to watch his son like a hawk in the classroom, he wasn't exactly comfortable himself.

"I was a bit nervous being there among the teenagers," he explained, “Mentally I hadn’t prepared to go into a situation like that." I wonder if he was tempted to talk?

Everyone else is loving this story:

Unfortunately for the physics teacher, neither dad nor son wishes to repeat the experiment. “I pray it was a one-time thing," dad Brad said, "I don’t think I’d ever do it again.” If only that would guarantee his son's good behavior.
