A father in China ended up crying and drying his own tears as he gave his son math tuition for one year, only for the child to get six out of 100 marks in his final mathematics examination.
A video put up on Weibo by mainland Chinese media Qilu Evening News of the father crying in a bedroom and wiping away his tears has made the rounds in China owing to the heartbreaking visuals but hilarious circumstances.
The man’s wife can be heard laughing in the background.
The father broke down in tears on June 23 as he felt let down when he received his son’s final exam report card.
The man and his wife live in Zhengzhou, Henan.
It was revealed that the man had been staying up late at night to give his son math tuition every day for the past year.
In the video, shot by the boy’s mother, the father said: “I don’t care anymore, my efforts are wasted, let him struggle by himself!”
