We all know birds kick their babies out of the nest to teach them how to fly.

But how about this dad who literally kicked his son down a skateboard ramp at a Florida skate park?

Since the video went viral, the dad has been banned from the park and the Florida Department of Children and Families is looking into the incident.

In the video, the little boy, who looks like he can't be much older than about 6 years old, hesitates at the top of the ramp before his dad steps behind him and kicks him over the edge.

His reason for doing it?

"He needs to learn."

Yikes. I hope he's not planning to teach him to swim next.
