Being a child of divorce can be really tough — just ask Tiana, who at six years old was already giving her parents advice on how to have a happy relationship.
Her mother, Cherish Sherry, recorded the precocious little girl as she sat on the stairs of their Surrey, British Columbia home after she and her ex-husband, Alfred, had gotten into a heated exchange in front of their daughter. After the two had calmed down, Tiana told them both to be nice to each other.
Moved, Sherry sat her daughter down to listen to her words of wisdom, which absolutely stunned her. “I didn’t think she could think like that!! She brought me [to] tears and [made me] feel guilty.”
“I’m trying to do my best in my heart,” Tiana said in the three minute video. “I want you, Mom, my dad, everyone to be friends. I want everyone to be smiling. Not like being mad. I think you can do it.”
The video went viral, racking up 14 million views on her mother’s FaceBook account and touching the hearts of many.
