A six-year-old boy in America is learning how to treat women properly by taking his mother on a date once a month with his pocket money..
According to The Independent, former US reality TV star Nikkole Paulun has been treated on a monthly basis by her son Lyle for the last four months.
Paulun, who appeared on the MTV show 16 and Pregnant, took to Facebook to explain the dates are meant to teach Lyle some life lessons.
In the post she says:
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.
Some social media users have responded to Paulun questioning whether the dates are fair on her young son, but she has been quick to point out she does not force Lyle to spending his money on her.
At six year’s old this lad is probably better prepared for his first date than most teenagers. Good on you Lyle.
