Batman's latest crusade — raising kids

Just because you get older, doesn't mean you can't still have fun. One dad dresses up as Batman (and disguises his voice, too!) to teach his children some important lessons, like putting seat belts on in the car, using your manners and waking up on time for school.

Studies have shown that dads who play with their children — whether it is through roughhousing or just taking part in tea parties — actually end up making their children smarter.

“Children crave time with parents,” according to the Child Development Institute. “It makes them feel special. Parents are encouraged to find time to spend playing with their kids on a regular basis. This should include one to one with each child and group time with all of the adults and kids in the home.”

BatDad seems to be doing just that — in a way some kids might better relate to. Check out the footage for yourself below:
