When the younger Brad walked into class, he didn’t notice his dad sitting at his desk, but was shocked to see dad waiting for him.
The older Brad said he was nervous being there, telling BuzzFeed: "Mentally I hadn't prepared to go into a situation like that."
While the younger Brad could have been the butt of his friend’s jokes, his dad said his son’s friends enjoyed having him there.
“I think they had a good time, especially knowing that Bradley was put in an uncomfortable situation,” he said.
Brad the elder said his son's teacher appreciated his appearance in class, but he hopes he doesn't have to do it again. "I pray it was a one-time thing," Brad the dad told BuzzFeed.
