5-year-old Charlie is totally a modern-day Rosie the Riveter.

Charlie’s parents decided to teach her some useful automotive skills while tearing down an old Jeep. Watch how proud she is at the end of this video for a reminder of one simple fact: You’re never too young to start learning practical life skills like this.

If you’re concerned about child safety, don’t get too worried. The video description explains that most of the dirt on her hands is just mud that built up inside the Jeep, and her parents made sure she washed thoroughly after working on the car.
