A father’s love for his child is always something to be fawned over.
A short TikTok video uploaded by @malaysianupdatenews showed several fathers perched on bus stop seats looking over what seems like a school wall.
The caption of the video read:
This is proof that fathers are more sentimental when it comes to their children going to school. To the point they stand on bus stop seats just to see what their child is doing.@malaysianupdatenews via TikTok
While many netizens teased the fathers in the video by saying that they were peeping at the new teachers, others described this video as “cute” and “beautiful” because it showed how far a father was willing to go to make sure his child was safe and having fun on their first day of school.

It’s so cute how the fathers are waiting for their kids by the school’s wall. Thank God universities are far, if not my dad would do the same as well.@jajaism4 via Twitter
Another Twitter user @_VRIFFVBDULLVH said five years to go before he too becomes just like the fathers in the video.
The other day I saw a dad pick up his child from a school van and I believe he asked the kid if he was alright and the little kid showed the father a thumbs up and the father immediately burst into a smile and high-fived his child.@_VRIFFVBDULLVH via Twitter
On the other hand, Twitter user @Betty_Melinaaa recalled how her father used to accommodate her needs when she was a child.
My dad used to feed me breakfast in the class because i cried my whole first week after changing kindergarten. I still remember what he said to me while feeding me and wiping my tears aaaahhh be right back gonna cry.@Betty_Melinaaa via Twitter
