Boy calls 911 for homework help

We know that calls to 911 should be reserved for emergencies and we teach our children that too, but sometimes we forget that parents and kids have vastly different ideas of what constitutes an emergency. Take, for example, a little boy who can't figure out a math problem. In an old 911 call that has recently gone viral, the 4-year-old calls 911 for help figuring out "takeaways," aka subtraction. After a bit of confusion about whether the boy was calling about his mouth or math, the 911 operator doesn't scold the boy; he actually attempts to help him! The two go back and forth for a bit before the boy's mother gets suspicious about her child being on the phone. That's when hilarity ensues:
