This 6-Year-Old Boy Takes His Mom To Dinner Dates Every Month Using His Own Money

Chivalry is dead, you say? Well, not quite just yet!

Chivalry is dead, you say? Well, not quite just yet! As long as we have guys like Lyle Drummonds, the world can always have hope.

Although merely six years of age, you will be amazed with Lyle. He’s a true blue gentleman who takes his mother to dinner dates once a month – and he shoulders the bill for these monthly dates from his own pocket.

According to Nikkole, Lyle’s mother, her son saves money from his allowance and then uses it for their dates.

Nikkole posted this photo of him on her Facebook and wrote these words:

“Once a month my 6 year old son takes me out on a dinner date. He opens doors for me, pulls out my chair, talks about his day & 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 & 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 & 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 my son won’t be one of them.”

Needless to say, our hats are off to this fine little lad.

This Story of a Man Who Treated 10 Soldiers to Lunch Will Surely Touch Your Heart

This heartwarming story proves that when you give kindness, it is given back a manifold.

By

We have always been told that what comes around goes around, or that we reap what we sow. So when one man onboard a plane bought lunch for 10 soldiers who couldn't afford it in-flight, his act of kindness spread through the other passengers. He may have done one act of selflessness for those heroes of the nation, but to them he will be remembered as a hero of kindness too.

The line that gets me tearing up is this one, "A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to and including my life. That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it."

Well I will let you read the rest of this heartwarming story below, and keep some tissues nearby for those tears. ...

Defunct Train Station In Japan Kept Operating For Only One Passenger

This story only shows how Japan values each and every person in their land! So touching!

A country's legislative body makes laws based on the needs of the majority and not just for the need of one citizen. But for Japan, this is not the case.

For years now, the defunct train station in Kami-Shirataki, which is located at the northernmost island of Hokkaido, continues to operate for only just one passenger: a high-school girl who is yet to finish her secondary education.

The reason why the government decided to do that will truly warm your heart....

After 27 Rejections, Dr. Seuss Almost Burned His Unpublished Book. Fortunately, He Didn’t!

Experiencing 27 rejections must have been terribly frustrating.

James Lee Burke once said “There's nothing like rejection to make you do an inventory of yourself.” However, in the case of well-loved children’s book writer and illustrator Dr. Seuss, it wasn’t a simple, single rejection. In fact, he got turned down 27 times by different publishers before he was able to get his first book published. Vanguard Press eventually gave his work a shot.

Born Theodor Seuss Geisel, he later adopted the pen name Dr. Seuss during his university studies at Dartmouth College and the University of Oxford. He initially worked doing illustrations for advertising firms. He also drew political cartoons for PM, a New York-based newspaper, and produced a few short films as an animator for the United States Army.

It took 27 rejections before Dr Seuss' first book “And To Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street” was published in 1937.
