Adults are often taken by surprise when children do anything thoughtful. In an endearing Reddit thread, u/olliepots shared the wholesome tale of how some children showed their neighbor, Ms. Karren—who is OP's mom—some kindness by checking in on her. The post touched many people's hearts on the platform and will probably do the same for you. Additionally, the tale features a lovely twist that will leave you in giggles. In the post, the Reddit user described how the children left a message on Karren's door after they saw a stranger visit her home. 

"Ms. Karren we saw a strange man walk in your house, and we would like to know if you are OK. If you are, then text my mom," reads the note, which also included a phone number. The youngsters signed the note with the name of their "gang."

u/olliepots revealed in the post caption that their father was the stranger the kids saw go into Karren's home. "My mom has a lot of kids on her street and they put this note on her door after seeing my dad go into her house... My parents don't live together, and my dad does look strange lol," they wrote. Other Reddit users were quick to note how the letter seemed to have been written by three children as it featured three distinct handwritings.



 

Many responded to the kids' sweet gesture by sharing their thoughts. One person said, "It's too cold now but the neighborhood kids would routinely knock on my door for after-school snacks. One time my husband opened the door and they were absolutely shocked. Miss those little goobers."

Another said, "This is so great! What a sweet group of kids!" Responding to this comment, one Reddit user wrote: "Aint no group of kids. Issa gang."

More so than being super savvy and shrewd, kids do have the kindest hearts. They never miss an opportunity to express how much they respect and adore someone. Another example of this is a little boy who went all out by writing an appreciation letter to his aunt. u/MerSeaMel shared the letter on Reddit with the caption, "My nephew wrote and mailed me an appreciation letter." 

The letter reads, "Dear Aunt Mel, I just wanted to take some time to thank you for being such a great auntie!" The boy then goes on to list the things that make her a great aunt. He wrote: "One of such things that makes you such a great person is that you are so caring." The child further noted how whenever he has "a question about plants," he can always count on his aunt to "give me a little tip."

The letter further reads: "Whenever I feel anxious you help me build my confidence which I really appreciate." The boy signed off the letter by writing, "Thanks for being awesome! With love, Mattncody." Many Reddit users were moved by this letter. One user commented, "That's so sweet, make sure you keep it and show it to him when he is older." Another added, "You are clearly the best kind of auntie there is. Good on ya!" 



 

One Reddit user even shared their own experience, "My nephew is 6 and is really getting his feet under him writing. He sent me a get-well card after I had surgery that just said 'dear aunt (me), I love you' and it is the most precious thing I own."
