A video is making the rounds on Twitter that has many parents questioning why they didn't think of it first.
Twitter user @Yo_bino shared a video of a dad and his small child at an Atlanta United soccer game.
The dad has managed to discover a way to both watch the game and keep his kid entertained at the same time.
The video can be seen below:

There was some argument on Twitter about whether this man was the most brilliant person of the day; some users asserting that he should simply give up on watching the game and focus solely on his child.

Some thought the idea was brilliant.
@KeeganMatheson @Yo_bino goodness. what a spectacular move— Braydon Holmyard (@Braydon Holmyard)1552342763.0
Many people struggle with finding a balance between caring for their children and still being able to enjoy the things they love.
If this dad's kid was older, the might be interested in the game too, but soccer is a bit much to follow as a toddler.
His idea keeps his kid entertained and safe while he can enjoy a sport he is presumably passionate about.
Seems like a win/win to us.
