Parents bear a responsibility to teach their children many important life lessons, starting with the simplest ones, such as how to tie your shoes or how to fry an egg, to those that are a bit trickier—how to accept love, treat people with kindness, stay true to yourself, and many more. Apparently, sometimes these lessons also include teaching your offspring how to bathe a newborn baby.
And using a cat for said demonstration.

Recently, this Vietnamese grandpa-to-be went viral on the interwebs for coming up with the most genius and adorable way to teach his son how to bathe a newborn baby.
