Teaching your kids how to play sports gives them an opportunity for a lifetime of healthy activity. It can also give the Internet a laugh. When this father tried to teach his son how to hit a baseball off a tee, it was trickier than he expected.
You start with learning the batting stance. Looks good so far:

“Math question: Mom lives 9/10 of a mile from my brother’s house. If I give my daughter a box of tissues, and then drive from my Mom’s house to my brother’s house at 35 mph, how many tissues can my daughter pull out of the tissue box, if she can pull tissues out at a rate of, like, so many per minute.”

“While visiting Boston last summer, we decided to walk through a historic graveyard. My husband was taking photos, and my youngest son decided to yell ‘Cheese!’ at the top of his lungs in the quiet historic graveyard filled with quiet respectful visitors. I was attempting to quiet him down. I have no idea what my oldest son is doing. There is just so much going on in this picture.”
