A viral video that’s been seen my 5.8 million people has a pretty
simple premise. A cute, precocious six-year-old girl is explaining to
her mom how to act around her dad… now that the couple is divorced.
The young woman, Tiana, was caught by her mom Sherry while she gave an
impassioned speech to her that covered the following:
Don’t be a meanie This is an ideal that most of us could aspire to, whether or not we’re
going through a divorce. "I don't want you and my dad to be replaced
and be meanies again," Tiana tells her mom, worrying about their
future interactions. "I want you and my dad to be [in a] place that's
settled and be friends. I'm not trying to be mean, I just want everyone
to be friends." Seriously — she’s six. So young, so deep.
Attitude is everything "I think you can do it," Tiana encourages Shelly when talking
about . "I think you can settle your mean heights down a little to
short heights, then it's both."
Everyone should be smiling This is the clincher. No matter what your circumstances, remember the
good times and your kids and smile your way through it all!
