The Short of It
Adorable 6-year-old Tiana gave an inspiring (and super sweet) speech to try to convince her divorced parents to be friends and be nice to each other.
This Canadian girl may have a future as a marriage counselor. Tiana was apparently tired of the bickering between her parents, who are divorced. After a nasty exchange over a broken shoe rack, she had a heart-to-heart with her mom, Cherish Sherry, (who posted the adorable video to her Facebook page)where she asks her mom to "try her best...to be friends." She reminds Cherish that "if I can be nice, all of us can be nice, too," and then expresses her wish for "everything to be nice—and nothing else." (Which, really, is a message for all of us—not just parents going through divorce!)
Must watch!! After came back from badminton I Open the garage door try to drive my car in and heard Tiana voice yelling "stopped mama"!! my shoe rack fallen down in the garage all over 50 pairs of shoes and the rack are on the ground.I get out of the car walk into the garage And Alfred came out yelling to me that my shoes rack was suck!! Complaining I bought a cheap shoes racks good for nothing!on and on..And I told him to just move get out of the way if he doesn't want to help then go away!as I get upset so didn't make it sound nice and friendly. But it's not a fight. Tiana offered to help me put up shoes on the rack That I rebuilt after all it done I am going to move the car in but Alfred offered help to tight up some lopes to help stabilized while he do that......I think she saw her dad helping me and then start talking..Tiana said in front of both of us,Why you guys don't try to be nice to each other... Like a friends helping each other don't get mad and be happy!! Lots more I was stunned by it! She is teaching me!!Woke me up!!! And then we sit down only me and Tiana And this is part of it as didn't think she could think like that!! She brought me tear and feel guilty Amazing little girl Her name is TIANAfirstname.lastname@example.orgPosted by Cherish Sherry on Wednesday, September 16, 2015
Divorce can be devastating not just for the couple, but for their kids as well. And even if you aren't having an (apparently) warm and snuggly "conscious uncoupling," like Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, there are ways to make co-parenting through a divorce easier for everyone. If nothing else, this video may serve as a great reminder to be kinder to each other as you go through a breakup, as all that bickering and fighting can have a big impact on your kids. (And if this little girl can be believed, it turns us all into monsters!)
