5-Year-Old Boy Receives His First Paycheck After Helping The Electricians His Mom Hired

This five-year-old boy was ecstatic upon receiving his first-ever paycheck after being a big help to the electricians his mom hired for repairs at their home.


Seytons Electrical paid their youngest and probably, cutest electrician/staff when they saw his great potential and experienced how hardworking this adorable boy was.

Laura Anderson was hesitant to hire electricians initially because she knew that her son, Theo, had tons of questions and might make them ‘get sick of his help.’ But, to her surprise, none of these happened, he was even paid for his curiosity and uber hospitality.

The electricians were in and out of their house for six weeks. Little Theo was always present to ask them a lot of questions and was extra helpful to get things accomplished. During those times he didn’t have questions to ask, he followed them around, and helped them the best way he can.

He lent an extra pair of hands and also, fed them well. One time, he demanded they take a break and eat several cookies. Sweetness overload literally and figuratively! Six weeks swiftly passed by, and it was now time for Theo to say bye to his newfound friends and co-workers.

But, things ain’t over yet, Laura and Theo had the biggest surprise of their lives when one of them came back. He handed the helpful young boy his first-ever paycheck. He was compensated for the valuable help he extended to these grateful electricians. A breakdown of his worthy contributions was also included.

  • Measuring of items
  • Counting and adding up the number of sockets
  • Catering (yummy cookies)
  • Excellent volunteering
  • Quality assurance (asking a lot of questions)

Laura posted this sweet gesture on Facebook. She wrote, “Quite possibly the sweetest act of kindness I’ve ever seen!” We have had the electricians in every other week for the past 6 weeks and Theo has been obsessed with them. He has hounded them with questions, kindness, and constant offers of help.”

She added, “I laughed that they would be sick of the sight of us and happy when the work was finished. One of them popped over today to finish something quickly and surprised Theo with this. His first ever job!

This mom was filled with joy and appreciation for the company for acknowledging her son’s brilliant contribution. She said, “Thank you Seytons Electrical. You have made Theo’s day!”

Theo, known to be thoughtful and sweet, treated his brother with his hard-earned money. He earned 15 pounds for his first job.

Who knows? This young man can own an electrical company when he grows up. He can be a helpful, generous CEO one day. Great job to his parents for raising him to not fear learning by asking questions and for looking out for others as well, through sharing what he had (yummy cookies).
