Most people are very kind
Here's an idea! Give your 6 year old some packets of nasturiums - he can sow them in some bare patches and your'll at least have something pretty there covering the soil through the summer - my daughter (Wonky Womble) was quite capable of sowing nasturtiums at 4 years old.
And he can pick the leaves and flowers and make you a salad
