When 17-year-old Brad got called out for disrupting his physics class, he knew his parents would hear about his antics.
"I like to talk a lot, and so my teacher kept emailing my dad about it," the Texas high schooler said.
But the teen never expected his father to take matters into his own hands.
His father, also named Brad, said, "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.'"
And that's exactly what he did when the next call came, as evidenced by his daughter Molli's photo on her Twitter page of the teen punishment.

Yes, really! On Brad's father's only day off (Friday), he made his way to his son's physics class and was there waiting for him at his desk.
The stunned teen said, "I didn't even notice him until after I had said hi to all of my friends, but I was super shocked."
Of course, his friends loved it.
“I think they had a good time," Brad's dad said. "Especially knowing that Bradley was put in an uncomfortable situation."
And the teacher was grateful for his over-the-top teen punishment, too. But don't look for Brad's dad to make a habit out of babysitting his son.
“I pray it was a one-time thing," he said. "I don’t think I’d ever do it again.”
One thing's for sure, this is one lesson his son will never forget!
