Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)
From CBS News in Denver…
Haylie Wenke, her little brother Reagen, and friend Ashley Dayton were doing what some kids do on a hot summer day in Aurora on July 18, visiting their local park to cool off at the splash pad.
On the way home, they found a wallet under a car, so they picked it up and took it to the front door of the house. In a video posted to Facebook by Jamie Carlton from his doorbell camera, Haylie can be heard saying, “We found your wallet outside your car and we just thought we would give it back to you so I’m going to put it over here so nobody takes any money.”
The wallet contained $700 in cash.
As parents, you always hope that your children will do the right thing when faced with situations like this. We often don’t get to see the results on video! The parents of these children can be proud of their kids.
As Haylie said, “Not very many kids our age would give back a wallet full of money.”
Thanks to Haylie, Reagen, and Ashley for setting a good example for kids of all ages.
