His kindness moves other passengers
Parenting Commentator / September 10 2016
An airline passenger who stepped in to help a pregnant mum with her unsettled toddler has impressed other travellers.
Angela Byrd was so heartened by the man who helped a woman with her fussy son that she snapped a pic of the kind stranger and uploaded it to the Facebook page Love What Matters.
Angela told how the man offered to help the mum. 'He told her that he was a dad and wanted to help so she could rest.'
She says the man walked the toddler up and down the aisle for most of the flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta.

I grew up in New Zealand, moved to London in my early 20s to work on British newspapers then moved to Australia when I was pregnant with my first child. I write a newspaper column, celebrity interviews and a parenting page. I also do TV and radio commentary, podcasting and host corporate events. I’ve also published a book on parenting, The Smallest Things. However, my greatest role – and the one I’m most proud of – is parenting my daughters, Eliza and Lilibelle, who are 17 and 14.
