Mshar told A Plus that she spoke to her son about the moment. “I did tell Alex how proud I am of him for being so kind and responsible. He lit up, thrilled that he had done something so mature and had made me so happy.”
“Alex has a strong desire to be independent, both in the day to day and in the big picture,” she continued, “He does chores, makes his own breakfast and lunch, and gets ready for each day independently, but getting breakfast for his brother and helping him get started on his day was a big leap in that direction.”
Facebook commenters are praising Alex and reflecting on how special this must be for him and his family.
