In a parody of the countless parents who have posted "kid-shaming" videos online, Gresham starts out declaring he's about to "teach his son a lesson."

"I don't teach my son to mess up in school, I don't teach him to do what he wants to do, I don't teach him to be a fool," he says. "But I give my son everything. And when it's time to do the right thing I expect for my son to not forget what he has learned."

"There's no way in the world I would ever embarrass my son like that," he says.

Gresham calls out parents who post videos to embarrass their kids, saying good parenting doesn't need to be that extreme.

A number of parents have gone viral for posting embarrassing videos or pictures of their children as a punishment for misbehaving.

"Good parenting starts before he even gets to the point of being out of control. ... Good parenting is letting your child know that you love them regardless of what they are and who they are and showing them the way by example," Gresham says.

Parents also aren't setting a good example when they use foul language or violence in the videos, he says.

"Not one time on this video have you heard me use profanity," he says. "Not one time on this video have you heard me put my son down."

The father of four later noted he is not saying he doesn't punish his kids, but it is a private matter.
