Keeping in tune with heartwarming news, Briefly.co.za also reported that parents will often find great inspiration and even life lessons in their experiences with their children and this story is a great example. Xilombe Kharidzha recently shared an experience that he had with his young son to the #I'mStaying group which taught him a lesson in humility.
The proud dad shared that his son had received a gift from his grandma and had made an unusual request:
"My son was given R50 by his grandmother and he asked me to take half of the money to add petrol in the car. And when I asked him why?"
His son's response had caught him completely off guard and the dad says that he was humbled by the gesture:
"He told me that he is giving me because I always buy him things that he needs. I was humbled by his words. Charity begins at home."
