Like most of us have experienced before, the first day of class has always been overwhelming. Most kids are afraid to go to school because they will be separated from their parents.
Cooner Crites, 8, upon reaching his school just stood alone in a corner crying. Maybe he was overwhelmed and overstimulated. Then suddenly, Christian Moore (right) held the hand of Conner Crites, who was crying on the first day of second grade.
While Conner stood alone in a corner crying, his classmate Christian Moore happened to glance over at him.
“Instead of overlooking him like most kids would have, he (Christian) just reached over, grabbed his hand and made my son’s day better,” Crites, 29, said Tuesday in an interview.
Christian's mother, Courtney Moore, was so happy for her son's act of kindness. Also, here's what April Crites (mom of the boy who cried) learned from this experience:
“You could choose to see someone who’s having a really bad day and say something horrible to them and make their day even worse,” Crites said. “Or you could choose the opposite and better route and say something nice, hand someone a tissue who’s crying and make their day better.”
This is also a reminder for parents to start teaching their kids the way they should go as young as they are.
