Single Mum Teaches Nine-Year-Old Son To Cook, Clean And Change A Car Tyre

Single Mum Teaches Nine-Year-Old Son To Cook, Clean And Change A Car Tyre

Not many people can say they know how to change a car's tyre but a single mum has taught her young son how to do just that - as well as how to cook and clean for himself.

Nine-year-old Wyatt has acquired a strong set of life skills thanks to his mum Shannon Broadfield, 27, from Sydney Australia.

Shannon was a single mum for most of Wyatt's life, meaning she required an extra set of hands whilst working as a mechanic full time.Wyatt is now happy to help with his six-month-old baby brother Austin and he often accompanies his mum in the garage.

The proud mum said: "I have taught my eldest son a lot of things that I feel will benefit him in his future.

"He absolutely loves to learn and it's also a great way to spend some time together.

"I am hoping the skills Wyatt has learnt will make life a bit easier when he grows up. He is only nine and he can mow the lawn, wash our car amongst other mechanical tasks.

"I have also taught him that women and men are equal as I work in a predominately male industry. Wyatt doesn't think it is unusual that I am a mechanic, he thinks it is 'normal' and believes women can do the same job as a man."

Shannon met her partner James Coombes, 28, in 2019 and they recently welcomed a baby. Wyatt helps take care of his brother.

"Wyatt is amazing with Austin, he feeds him and soothes him. They are so close already, I love to watch them giggle together.

"I hope that he looks back on the skills I have taught him and is grateful in the future."
