This young boy helped his mom who works as a street sweeper so she can go home early.
It is very heartwarming to witness a child who willingly helps their parents especially when they need it the most. While some children nowadays became liberated and forget discipline and the importance of character, there are still children who live in good values. With that in mind, this particular young boy helped his mom who works as a street sweeper so she can go home early.
This 11-year-old boy saw her mother exhausted and went home very dark, Long Guotao knew that he had to do something. His photo showing him helping his street sweeper mom clean the street won the hearts of many Chinese and gained so much attention on the internet.
For his 46-year-old mother, Wu Azhen, to went home early, he took the broom and dustpan from his mom and started sweeping. According to GOODTIMES, they initially planned to meet up in an area where they could buy him a new schoolbag, but instead, he suddenly took the broom off her and started sweeping the street.
“He would often come and help me. In the past, he would always deliver my meals on the weekends and help me clean a bit before he left. Sometimes when he finished sweeping, he would also help me pick up water bottles and bits of paper from the ground. The work is really too hard for someone so young,” Wu told the news website.
“He is truly a great boy,” she added.
“Every day I have to go out at 5 am to clean the streets, and by the time I finish dumping all the rubbish, it is already very dark. My younger son saw that it was exhausting for me, so he would regularly come out to help,” she said.
But Wu wished that Long would spend more time in his studies.
“His grades haven’t been good recently. I don’t let him come and help me now so that he can spend more time studying at home.”
