Six-Year-Old Treats His Mom To Dinner Dates Once A Month With His Allowance Money
January 5, 2016
He may only be six years old, but Lyle Drummonds is already a gentleman.
Lyle's mother, Nikkole, posted a photo on Facebook that shows Lyle sitting across the table from her, opening a wallet and pulling out some cash. In the text that accompanied the photo, she explained that once a month, Lyle takes her out on a "dinner date," and the six-year-old pays for the bill with his allowance.
"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."
The two have been going on these dinner dates for four months now, and Nikkole believes her intended lessons of respect and good manners are "working well."
"I have seen him use his politeness everywhere," Nikkole said. "He will ask people who come over questions about their day or their life. It's so cute."
