WATCH: Dad pushes son to try and make save in contender for video of the year
Everyone knows a parent’s job is to create a supportive environment for their kids, giving them the space to make their own mistakes as well as everything they need to fix their problems and learn from them.
In some instances though, it can mean pushing your son into the path of a ball in order to teach them how to save a shot.
Parenting 101 really...
In an under 8s game against Llanilar FC in Wales, the small goalie for Bow Street FC appeared to be distracted by his dad behind the goal.
Being one of the ruthless competitors you frequently see at under 8s, the Llanilar striker was only too keen to take advantage of the situation by carefully placing a shot on goal.
The Bow Street goalie was blissfully unaware of the danger facing his team while still distracted by his father's presence, but the father was well aware of the danger facing his son.
He did the only thing he could do to try and salvage the situation, and in doing so, created a contender for the funniest video of the year.
