A little boy’s mother thought her son must be annoying the employees who came to work on her house, but instead, they loved him.

Parents often try to raise their kids with good morals, including hard work. They assign their
children chores and encourage their teenagers to get a job in order to instill this value.

One mother must have done a particularly good job because her little boy not only learned to help his family around the house, but also helped the electricians that came by.

Why a Little Boy Bombarded Electricians With Questions

Laura-Nicole Anderson had hired Seytons Electrical to help her fix electrical problems around the house.

Laura-Nicole’s son, Theo, took immediate interest in them. When Theo met the electricians, he
asked them question after question, trying to understand what they were doing in his house.

Laura-Nicole believed that the electricians would be relieved when they finished their work so
they could finally get away from the little boy who asked so many questions and tried to get involved.

“I laughed that they would be sick of the sight of us and happy when the work was finished,” she wrote.

But she found out the employees weren’t waiting to get away from little Theo after all. Instead of being annoyed at her son like Laura-Nicole predicted, the workers were proud of him.

To show him their gratitude, they issued Theo a payslip. He earned a total of 15 pounds for all his help, which included measuring items, counting and adding the number of sockets, catering cookies, and excellent volunteering. He even got an added bonus for quality assurance, which he showed by asking all of his questions.

How Electricians Chose to Nurture a Little Boy’s Curiosity

Laura-Nicole called this gesture “the sweetest act of kindness.” She then posted about the exchange on Facebook, and her photos and words garnered thousands of shares and likes.

Though the post went viral, the comments were incredibly kind. “That’s wonderful, so kind and thoughtful,” commented one user.

“So lovely — there are good people in this world! Sometimes it’s easy to forget that outside of your circles,” wrote another.

On top of the electrician’s generosity, Theo displayed some incredible kindness as well. With his first salary, he bought an Easter egg for his brother.

This interaction was a beautiful example of a group of people supporting and encouraging curiosity in the next generation. Instead of brushing Theo off, the electricians nurtured Theo’s interest and have opened the way for him to continue to ask questions, volunteer, and engage with others.
