Mom shares tip on helping kids learn about bullying [Video]



  • Diosa Chiqui, life coach, enterpreneur, and mom, shared how she taught her kids about bullying.
  • She used a visual method, which involves crumpling a piece of paper every time the kids threw insults at it.
  • She then showed how the paper remained crumpled and will no longer be completely “fixed” even after apologizing.

A mom has found a quick and clever way to teach kids about bullying, and she has shared it with the online world.

Diosa Chiqui, a life coach and entrepreneur, shared her creative method on TikTok.

The video, which illustrates the dangerous effects of bullying, has since gone viral with more than 8 million views.

The exercise was simple and only needed a piece of paper.

In the video, Diosa can be seen sitting at the table with her two daughters. She then holds up a blank piece of paper.

She then instructed her daughters to “say mean things to this paper.”

The girls then began hurling mean words, such as “You’re ugly,” and “You smell like dog food!” Diosa crumpled up the paper after each insult until it became smaller and smaller.

In the end, it was crumpled into a tiny ball.

Diosa then asked her daughters to apologize to the paper. The girls said sorry, and their mom unfolded the paper. However, the paper still looked crumpled.


“Is it fixed?” she asked.

Both girls replied with a “No.”

“This is why you don’t bully,” Diosa told them. 

Her visual lesson impressed several TikTok users, calling it “beautiful teaching.”

One commenter shared how her dad used a similar visual exercise to teach her about bullying: “My dad taught me by hammering nails into the fence, and he would show the hole left behind. I love visual lessons for kids.”

Bullying increases the risk of “depression, anxiety, sleep difficulties, lower academic achievement, and dropping out of school,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One out of every five students says they were bullied at one point, the PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center reports.

While apologizing is only one of many steps to repairing a relationship and supporting a victim of bullying, helping kids understand the impact of bullying by visualizing it is also important.

There are already several anti-bullying resources and organizations, but parents can also do their part at home by sitting down with their kids and talking to them about it. Visual techniques, like the one Diosa used, are just one way of making them understand the dangers of bullying.
