Mom stunned by act of kindness at Pizza Hut (finally something good out of NC!)

http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?section=news/local&id=9302645

The Raleigh woman said the past few years have been very trying for her family. She is going through a messy divorce, has had to move several times, and her college student had to take a year off from school. She said recently she found out that her 4-year-old daughter has bullying tendencies, and her 6-year-old son is living with Asperger's and ADHD.

Every Friday night, the woman takes her family on a dinner tour where they eat at a different restaurant each week. On Friday, the family went straight from daycare and after school to the Pizza Hut off Sherron Road.

It was around 6 p.m., and her son's medication had long worn off. She was left with parenting lessons she had learned from classes and reading.

She said after they were seated, she saw a young man seated alone in a nearby booth. As she would normally do, the mother apologized for how loud the children were going to be and asked him to forgive them.

And nice of Pizza Hut to share with her the way they did.

Thanks for the story!

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]I love these stories!

If everyone who was in a financial position to do things like this actually did them, randomly, even just once or twice a year, all our lives would be so much more beautiful.

5. This story has inspired me

I get so frustrated with all the parents who don't seem to want to parent their children in public but either ignore them or fear being seen as the bad dad/mom. It seems rather recent to see children running and screaming in restaurants and stores, destroying things and running amok. It always seems like the calm children are the most secure and happy and is a reflection of great parenting. When I see it, I'm going to do just like Jake and maybe leave a little gift and a note. Parenting is very hard and good ones should get all the praise in the world.

6. Parenting is the hardest and most exhausting task I've ever encountered.

My kids grew into wonderful, responsible, good-hearted adults, but we had our moments.

You're right. What an inspiration. I'm going to be on the lookout and give a hand where I can.

8. It's also very striking how whenever I read these stories

People are struggling so much financially that picking up the tab for a pizza dinner that probably cost around $25 can bring tears to someone's eyes. That is just so sad and puts another layer of stress on people.
