Yeah most parents would have a difficult time restraining themselves. Still the father should have been a better judge of character and ensured that his son was mature enough for the sport (obviously he wasn't).
I'm a father of 2 kids and ya, parental instincts would kick in but it would be to stop it not escalate it.... in the video no punches were being thrown when the father got there. As a parent and responsible adult, it's your responsibility to de-escalate the situation not make it worse.
