Ben Sowards just gave dads around the world an amazing lesson in parenting.
His six-year-old daughter Valerie had an accident in school, and her dad was told she was crying and wanted to go home.
He told BuzzFeed:
My heart kind of just broke.
Sowards - who has 11 children, four from foster care - went into the school, and asked for Valerie’s backpack to cover up his own “accident”.
She looked at me with just the biggest incredulity. She was laughing about it. It was so funny.
Valerie’s older sister tweeted photos of the pair, and people loved it:
