In a heartwarming story of kindness and friendship, a group of teenage boys recently befriended a 5-year-old boy with ADHD and high-functioning autism and taught him how to ride a skateboard.
The boy’s mother says she took her son, Carter, to the New Jersey skate park to celebrate his birthday.
She was filming Carter riding his scooter when a group of teens started to sing happy birthday to him.
“I never expected them to do that!” the boy’s mother said.
As a present, one of the teens gave Carter a mini skateboard and took the time to teach the boy how to ride it, she added.
“This kid’s already better than me,” the teen is heard saying in a video the mother shared on South Brunswick Community‘s Facebook page.
