This story might make every mother jealous and some harsh lesson to children. People would have been in awe of this kid, who is just six years old. Lyle Drummonds takes his mother out on a dinner date every month with his own money saved from his allowances.
Here’s what Nikkole, Lyle’s mother had posted:
“Once a month my 6 year old son takes me out on a dinner date. He opens door for me, pulls out my chair, talks about his day and asks me how mine was, pays the bill with money he earned by doing chores, and even tips the waiter/waitress.
By doing this I am teaching him how to treat a lady and how to take her on a proper date. How to show that he respects the woman he loves (right now that would be mommy). We put our phone and iPad away (except to take this photo) and sit and talk to each other about our days, things we want to do, etc. I’m teaching him proper table manners and that it’s rude to sit on your phone on a date with your mom or with anyone else.
He learns the value of money and how to manage it. He learns how to do math as we add up what we want and make sure we have 15% of it to leave for a tip. Yes he is young but I believe this is something he should learn now. It’s never too early to teach your child how to properly respect others. Especially women. As a woman who has been abused and treated like crap in the past, it’s extremely important to me that I teach my son how to show respect.
Too many men these days have no idea how to treat women or how to take them on a nice date. It’s nice to know that my son won’t be one of them.”
Isn’t he the cutest?
