Nikkole Paulun, a former US reality TV star, has been reportedly having a date with a special someone for the last four months. But it isn’t just any guy because according to The Independent, it was his son Lyle who has been treating her mother on a monthly date.
Nikkole was known for making an appearance on the MTV show 16 and Pregnant. She explained it on her Facebook account that she wanted to teach Lyle some life lessons through their monthly date.
She explains in her viral post,
“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.”
A lot of Facebook users have reacted negatively to Nikkole’s way of teaching her son a valuable lesson. However, Nikkole has always answered them by pointing out that she does not force her child to spend his money during their dates.
At a young age of six, this boy is learning the meaning of spending time and money on something he treasures the most. He is learning to value what and who is truly more important.
