This six-year-old just gave her divorced parents a serious talking to.

Tiana just wants everyone to be happy and get along, especially her divorced parents.

The little girl gave her mom a heartwarming talking-to about why it’s important to be nice to one another. Cherish Sherry, from in Surrey, British Columbia, posted a clip on Facebook of her daughter Tiana’s advice.

After observing a fight over a fallen shoe rack, the six-year-old sat her mom down. Sherry recorded their conversation and uploaded the video to Facebook on September 16.

The post has since went viral, has over 13 million views and over 500 000 shares. And to think, it all started with a little mess in the garage!

As Sherry was driving into the garage, she heard Tiana scream "stop moma". When she got out of the car she saw that her shoe rack had fallen. She was upset with Tiana's dad for breaking her rack, even after he offered to help her pick her shoes up.

That's when Tiana stepped in. Sitting on the stairs in her pink pajamas, she declares that she just wants everyone to smile.

"I'm trying to do my best in my heart... 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."

Sherry wrote in the post that she was stunned by those words but felt her daughter was teaching her something valuable.

"Mom, are you ready to be his friend?" Tiana sternly asks in the beginning of the video.

Sherry says she didn't know her daughter had it in her talk like that.

"I didn't think she could think like that!! She brought me tear[s] and [now I] feel guilty," Sherry wrote.

At the end of her lecture, her mom tells her, "Thank you, Tiana," and they have a hug and kiss.
