X user Varsha shared a Twitter thread documenting how her daughter helped another kid. “Around 1.5 months ago I saw a message in a group. A mom asking for help. Her specially-abled daughter needed a Grade 4 kid as a reader writer for her final exam. On a whim, I asked my 4th grader daughter if she would like to be one,” Varsha wrote.

“And there began a spate of phone calls, looking up the exam calendar and after a night of rumination and assurances that 'saying no won't make you a bad person nor me unhappy or disappointed, but do this only if you want to, my little girl decided to take this on,” she added.
