We’ve all heard the complaints. Today’s children are more disrespectful, undisciplined, and have a greater sense of entitlement than ever before. But do they really?
Imgur user Phineas1713 recently posted about what his son wanted to do for Christmas, and we think it’s the perfect way to dispel this timeless complaint.
“Saturday morning, my son walked into my room and said he wanted to use his money to help the homeless.”
I asked him what he had in mind, and he said he wanted to make them lunches. I have to be honest, I almost tried to talk him into just holding on to his money and having mom and dad pay for it, but the light in his eyes told me to just roll with it.
“My son put me on sandwich duty while he stuffed the bags with the stuff he picked out at the store.”
“Proud little guy.”
“Lunch on the counter.”
“Lunch in the car.”
“He did most of the handing-out by himself, but this was the only picture we got of us actually giving the stuff out.”
