Gwen Vermeulen, is one proud mom. She and her adorable three-year-old son went to an Ackermans store recently. Vermeulen admitted they got there a bit late and some of the staff members were already busy cleaning the shop before closing time.
However, her toddler decided that the lady couldn't clean by herself and started helping. The proud mom captured the moment on camera and she shared the photos on the #ImStaying Facebook page.
She captioned the post:
"So we went a bit late to Ackermans and the staff were cleaning and packing away all the clothes. My three-year-old decided that they can't work alone... and there he starts helping! It's the small things..."
The post quickly gathered over 15 000 reactions and South Africans applauded the kind young boy.

Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that a 10-year-old boy asked his mother to stop the car so that he could help an informal recycler struggling to push his cart up the road. His act of kindness was shared by his mother on social media.
James Hefer left his mother speechless when he performed a random act of kindness on the way to school. It was bin day and the informal recyclers were out on the roads collecting all their recyclables.
The young boy saw a man struggling to push his trolley up a hill and felt the need to help. The mother stopped her car and watched as her son rush out to help the man push his trolley.
After James was done helping the man, his mother offered the man R50 - he refused it. He did welcome a blanket as a gift.
