Within a couple of minutes, the whole tense situation changes into a happy one. The father's reaction expresses his happiness.
Getting into a dream college requires a lot of hard work and dedication from the person. But once it happens, the people who are the happiest for their achievement are their parents. They always remain the biggest cheerleaders and support them in all their critical decisions in life. In a video posted by Joshua Cooper–who goes on TikTok by @joshuacooper_–his father's reaction to him getting into his dream college is wholesome. He looks more excited than his son and keeps jumping after looking at the results.
At the beginning of the video, the father can be seen carefully looking at the results, standing in the back while Cooper is checking it on his laptop. The dad looks quite serious. In minutes, the whole tense situation changes into a happy one. Cooper's father jumps and says, "Congratulations" and keeps jumping and saying, "Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!" Not only that but also the son is sitting on the chair in disbelief. The son becomes emotional and is seen keeping his hands on his head. The father is laughing and tells Cooper, "I'm so proud." Meanwhile, another family member comes and hugs the boy.
The video has gained more than 1000 views and is captioned, "Pov: You find out you got into your dream school." @bailey.sbf commented, "Man, your dad's reaction is amazing. Congrats, man, enjoy that feeling." One person asked in the comment which college he got into and Cooper responded, "I got into NYU at Tisch School of the Arts' Clive Davis Institute." @e3izenuf expressed after watching the video, "Try to tell me that your parents aren't your biggest fans. I dare you."
Parents like these make a huge difference in children's lives. They help their kids dream big and encourage them to keep chasing their goals no matter what the hurdles are. Kudos to Cooper's father.

Talking about parents who support their kids, this mother decided to fulfill her late son's wish to complete college. Ben Algar was enrolled in the carpentry course at Durham College. He did his college for a few months but had to stop his education due to his cancer diagnosis. The college was kind enough to keep his college seat for a year. One of his professors told him they were hoping for a miracle and wanted to see him in the front row come Fall. This is what Algar told him, "I'm hoping for a miracle as well. But if it doesn't come, I'm going to send my mom in my place." Sadly, he died of cancer sometime later.

Danita, his mom, struggled with her son's death, but Don Fisher, a professor from the college, asked her to honor his last wish. While going through the grief, the course helped her overcome it. She began attending classes and also became a mentor for her classmates, helping them out. She said, "I wanted to be in that top position and to be able to say to Ben, 'I gave it everything I had.'" She was able to do that and got her diploma as the highest-ranking student. While receiving the diploma on the stage, she said, "Ben was a great kid. He was kind. He was supportive, and we really miss him."
