A preschool is a foundation for a lot of things in a kid's life, be it learning how to read, write, socialize etc. But they don't really teach you vital life skills like, say, wiping one's butt.
A video of teacher showing preschoolers how to wipe butts (with the clever use of balloons) is going viral. This teacher not only showed her students the most basic and essential activity in a person's day but also showed them the correct way of doing it.

The teacher can be seen wiping the balloon front to back, folding the paper and wiping it back again. The balloons were the perfect example to show this practice in practical terms.
Twitter users too lauded the teacher for teaching these kids one of the most vital activities in a person's day.
a lot of people are commenting stating this should be taught at home....y'all know damn well little kids BARELY EVER wipe correctly...add on that they probably listen to their teacher more than they listen to their parent(s), this is a great idea— 🧚🏾♀️ (@JUHKEEMUH) October 11, 2019
I love this woman! She has her students intensely watching. So cool. #Goodteachers Priceless!💙— Toni (resisting since 1973) (@lost_in_modesto) October 10, 2019
You can catch infections by not wiping correctly, so this is important.— ❤ (@ItsAllForeign) October 11, 2019
Bless this class and this teacher, the balloon bum is cute!— Ms T (@Nubikitty) October 11, 2019
I think it’s great for them to be teaching kids stuff like this in school & real life situations (like taxes etc when they’re in high school etc).— 😘😍🥰 (@glxwuinghearts) October 11, 2019
Great point! We should put together 10 essential life skills and offer a couple of ways to demonstrate so that our youth understands.— KJ Howard (@KA9NYA) October 10, 2019
this is good but parents should also be teaching their kids this while they’re potty training!!!!— daph (@daphneileanidd) October 10, 2019
I believe you're right. I'm sure some are offended, but I think this imaginative and wise. Thanks.— Jim Owen (@studenthumanjim) October 10, 2019
Kudos to this teacher for imparting this key skill to her students.
