The innocence and honesty of children are things to admire. One young boy's request at his school ended up helping his mother.
Recently, a mother, Nhlanhla Sarah, took to the #ImStaying Facebook group to share how her son ended up helping her.
Sarah revealed that on Monday, February 17, when she went to pick up her son from school, his class teacher gave her two plastic bags filled with clothes.
The beautiful mother was confused about the gifts and asked why she had been given clothes.
"Apparently my son overheard his teacher saying they are taking some clothes to dump and he asked if the teacher could give them to me as we would really love to have them instead of them throwing them away," she revealed.
Sarah admitted that she was a "little embarrassed at first" but after swallowing her pride she realised they needed the clothes.
On top of that, the school also gave them food and Sarah was in awe of how her son helped her.
"I took them with no pride cause I needed them, they also gave me some food. I was so happy and the clothes are so beautiful, as I speak he's already picked clothes for casual day on Friday. I'm so proud of this little fella looking out for his mom. I'm definitely raising a gentleman."
