    My son went to the corner store not long ago. He found a wallet by the curb. He brought it home to show me. It was a seniors wallet, full of money, id etc.
    My son was so upset that this man lost his wallet. He asked me"what if that was all the money he has?" "We have to find him" he was literally panicing.
    I pulled out the id, and looked his name up, turns out he only lives 2 blocks from here. I called him and told him my son found his wallet. The man was soooo relieved he was almost in tears He came over to pick it up. He was soooo greatful to my son for being a honest kid. He said most kids nowadays would have took the money. My son replied, "My parents taught me better"
    The man offered my son $50 out of the wallet, my son shook his hand no and said it's ok. The man was persistant and so was my son.
    He said Thank you and left.
    I am making supper and theres a knock on the door, it was the same man. He brought my son 2 boxes of drumsticks, freezies, and a huge slurpee!!!! I almost fainted lol. My son isn't home now so he doesn't know yet, he's out skateboarding.
    I am sooooooooooooooo proud of my boy

    If that's what he's like at 15, I don't think you have anything to worry about. What a great kid and what a wonderful man for insisting on rewarding him.
