A mother has been inundated with praise online after sharing the parenting method she used to teach her daughter a lesson about bullying

A mother forced her daughter to make the ultimate apology after catching her ‘being a follower’ and bullying another girl at school.

She’s since been inundated with praise online after sharing the parenting method she used to teach her daughter a lesson.

Dominique Mackey, from Atlanta, racked up almost 13 million views altogether on two TikToks she posted about the situation.

The mother-of-two has been swamped with comments, with people across the world saying it ‘warms their heart’ and they ‘love’ how she turned it into a learning experience.

In the first clip, posted under her handle @afrolatina93, she wrote on the screen: ‘POV: Your child decided to be a follower and bully another kid today, knowing you hate bullies. This is how we apologise in our household’.

She filmed her little girl Zariah walking around the supermarket, picking out gifts for the child she was picking on at school. 

The American showed off the gift basket she had put together, including sweets, a notepad, chocolate, a face mask, a teddy bear and more.

She also showed viewers the card she included, written by her daughter – slipped inside was a $15 gift card for Krispy Kreme.

The card read: ‘I’m sorry for being mean to you and talking about your hair. You are a wonderful friend to me. I apologise for that. From, Zariah’.

Dominique captioned the video: ‘I always tell my kids that you never know what a person is going through at home and what they have to deal with everyday.

‘You are to always be kind to everyone because how you treat someone can impact their mental health in either two ways. 

‘Not only that but everything you have can be taken away just as fast as you received it! Humble yourself!’

Prompted for an update after the first video was seen by millions, the TikToker posted a part two.

She recorded her daughter walking into school to give the gift basket, complete with flowers and a balloon, to the girl she had bullied. 

The kind parent even went as far as calling the other little girl’s mother and offering to take her daughter to get her hair braided.

Filming the call, she explained: ‘I wanted to pay to take your daughter to get her hair braided from one of my friends who braids my kids hair.

‘I wanted her to take my daughters spot because I pay for my kids, but I told my daughter, ‘since you want to talk about people’s hair and you want to bully somebody, I’m going to give her your spot’.

‘I wanted to know if it was okay with you if she takes her spot by getting some knotless braids’.

She added: ‘We all have those days but it’s still not acceptable for children to talk about someone else.

‘You never know what anybody’s going through at home bad or good and I teach my kids that we don’t do that because whatever you have can be taken away withthe snap of a finger.

Dominique updated viewers who had been following along in the caption, writing: ‘I appreciate all the love and support you all have shown! 

‘The little girl was so happy and grateful and her mom was as well. My daughter understands her wrong doing and promised to never hurt anyone else again’.

The mother-of-two’s followers rushed to the comments to praise her parenting techniques, penning: ‘We need more parents like you!’

One viewer wrote: ‘As a girl who grew up getting bullied this warms my heart. As a kid I was taught to be quiet and take it. More kids need to be raised like this’. 

Another quipped: ‘I’m crying, you healed my inner child. I was brutally bullied as a child for absolutely no reason’.

Meanwhile, someone else penned: ‘I love how you turned it into a learning experience in a kind loving way instead of some embarrassing punishment’.

Others gushed: ‘Bullying is one thing I won’t tolerate. Love this’ and ‘What a beautiful gesture, good job mom!’

Someone else chimed in with: ‘I grew up getting bullied and this made me tear up a bit, to see a parent raising their kid right’.

However, others weren't convinced by the lesson, with one questioning: 'But is she really sorry? That's all that matters, because friends that gifted me items were my biggest bullies'

Another agreed: ‘In a world where many parents will defend their bully child or just ignore the situation, you are a beautiful shining star and I hope many will learn’. 

However, others weren’t convinced by the lesson, with one questioning: ‘But is she really sorry? That’s all that matters, because friends that gifted me items were my biggest bullies’.

Dominique replied: ‘She’s not a bad kid at all she was just hanging around the wrong crowd that’s all. Her apology was sincere’.

Someone else argued: ‘This is only a lesson, if she bought the items with her own money’.

Another angrily added: ‘And still, the parent has to pay for those gifts. Maybe use whatever money the ‘bully’ has to buy the gifts so she learn her lesson the hard way’.

But others defended the choice, writing: ‘I wouldn’t even be mad if I did this and my mom made me do this’ and ‘Way to go mom. You are setting a great example’.
