Divorce can be really difficult on kids.
Usually children get (understandably) upset when their parents decide to separate.
Sometimes, though — as in the case of this little girl — they turn out to handle it in a more mature way than you ever imagined.
This small, insanely eloquent 6-year-old girl had some kind, encouraging words for her mom, who captured her daughter’s adorable, almost three minute speech on video.
Luckily for all of us, Mom uploaded the video online.
“I’m not trying to be mean, I just want everyone to be friends,” the little girl says to her mom.
“If I can be nice, I think all of us can be nice too…I’m trying to do my best in my heart.”
