We know how stressful it is to teach other people on certain subjects, especially when it’s not exactly their best.
At worst, it can also cause us to break down in frustration and helplessness, just like this 12-year-old boy from Liaoning, China.
Tried to be patient
Recently, a video of a Chinese boy trying to teach his sister math has gone viral on Douyin.
According to the mother surnamed Zhong, her son had volunteered to teach his sister after he saw her getting angry while doing so.
She said that he was gentle with his sister and they got along well. However, they began to argue over how to solve a certain math question.
He also became increasingly furious when his sister refused to follow his instructions.
Cries in frustration
In the video, Zhong jokingly told her son, “You are also not qualified to be a teacher”.
In reply, the boy murmured, “I already gave her the answer, there are three right angles in the picture but she still insists that there are two right angles.”
As he held on to the chair for support while his knees buckled and his body swayed in sheer frustration, the boy burst into tears and said, ““I’ve pointed out to her the three angles. She was so stubborn that she still said there are just two.”
Given the circumstances, all the boy’s sister could do was to lower her head and sob as her brother rambled on.

‘He instantly aged by 50 years’
The clip has since garnered over 8 million views on Douyin and left netizens deeply sympathetic over the boy’s plight.
“He got so mad that he instantly aged by 50 years.”
“Both parties are clearly suffering.”
“A young boy’s ambition of becoming a teacher has just been lost.”
Now we know how our parents feel when they teach us math, right?
