Every parent wishes they knew how their children behave when no one is looking. Thanks to a neighbor’s security camera, a Utah mom got a glimpse into the true character of her 7-year old son, Wyatt.
In a video posted online, young Wyatt is seen riding a small motorbike up to his neighbor’s house. Before dismounting the bike, Wyatt places his hand over his heart and recites the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag that is displayed in front of the house.
Wyatt then proceeds to ring the doorbell. As he waits for someone to answer the door, he steps back and seems to watch the flag as it waves in the wind. The look of admiration on his face as he watches Old Glory is one that will make you proud.
Wyatt’s mom, Jami Warner, told media that she had never seen her son do this before outside of school or a sporting event.
“He doesn’t pledge allegiance, that I am aware of, other than at school … or at an event,” said Jami. “I can’t remember a time when he did this on his own.”
The video made Warner wonder what else her kids do when she’s not looking.
“Sometimes we are only looking at them when we notice they are doing something wrong and we need to correct it,” Jami said. “I wish I could see what my other two do when I am not looking.”
When Jami saw the video of her son, she said she wished every parent could see it, to show that children actually listen.
“I wished I could show it to every parent who feels like what they teach their kids goes in one ear and out the other,” said Jami. “We try to teach our three kids about how lucky they are to live in this country and about the men and women who have served and died for our freedom.”
Children “born into today’s world are strong,” Jami added. “I think if we would watch more we would learn from their honesty and sincerity.”
