Meet Lyle Drummonds, a six-year-old boy, but he already knows how to treat the ladies right.
On a monthly basis, kind Lyle takes his mom out on a dinner date with his allowance money. The chivalrous Grade 1 student’s mom, Nikkole Paulun who happens to be reality television star , took to Facebook on New Year’s Day to tell the world about their dates. It went viral from there.

Once a month my 6 year old son takes me out on a dinner date. He opens doors for me, pulls out my chair, talks about his day & asks me how mine was, pays the bill with money he earned by doing chores, and even tips the waiter/waitress. By doing this I am teaching him how to treat a lady & how to take her on a proper date. How to show that he respects the woman he loves (right now that would be mommy). We put our phone and iPad away (except to take this photo) and sit and talk to each other about our days, things we want to do, etc. 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. As a woman who has been abused & treated like crap in the past, it’s extremely important to me that I teach my son how to show respect. Too many men these days have no idea how to treat women or how to take them on a nice date. It’s nice to know my son won’t be one of them.
The two have been going on these dinner dates for four months now, and Nikkole believes her intended lessons of respect and good manners are “working well.””Too many men these days have no idea how to treat women or how to take them on a nice date. It’s nice to know my son won’t be one of them,” the proud mom said.
This is a story that will make you wonder why your kids can’t ever be this graceful.Needless to say ,our hats are off to the fine little lad.
