Two Little Girls Sit 6 Feet Apart Yelling Compliments To Strangers, Dad Documents It In A Hilarious Twitter Thread

Despite the novel coronavirus pandemic still ravaging the world, the Internet is still full of surprises as people are sharing the most wholesome things that are happening to them during the quarantine. One of the most wholesome silver linings that went viral recently is kids’ musician, writer, and teacher Bret Turner’s thread about his 5-year-old daughter and her friend yelling compliments at passing strangers. No worries, though—the little girls kept an appropriate social distance of 6 feet!

Bret Turner never fails to share the most wholesome content, whether that would be little remarks from his daily life on Twitter, or songs for children he’s usually posting on Instagram. But we’d dare to argue that his recent thread is by far the most adorable thing he’s ever shared with the Internet.

Apparently, his 5-year-old daughter and her neighbor got the most wholesome idea to pass time by complimenting strangers

To make sure they’re heard, the girls figured they wouldn’t bother saying them nicely

Turns out, his 5-year-old daughter figured that the best way to spend quarantine is to shout compliments at strangers and invited a neighbor for the task. The two girls then went on to sit neatly 6 feet apart on the sidewalk in front of Turner’s house and proceeded with the compliments.

And just simply screamed the compliments at the strangers walking by

Well, at least they were sitting 6 feet apart like the good girls they are!

As the little kids still have no filter, they blurted out the most random yet hilariously adorable things. Thankfully, Turner not only documented their compliments, but shared it on Twitter as well. Nothing passed these two little girls by. Having your shirt match your dog? Compliment. Wearing nice shoes? Apparently, they make your eyes shine!

The adorable duo showered people with compliments, not forgetting about themselves too: “Your dog’s face is almost as cute as my face from when I was a baby!” Turner’s adorable daughter shouted to one of the strangers. Our guess is, no one argued. After all, these little girls are certainly the cheerleaders the world needs right now!

I'm a fairly large woman. And there are times small kids stare at me..usually their parents scold them about staring. One little girl kept telling her mother "Mom! Look at that lady! Mom!" Her mother tried to hush her. I walked over and said "What would you like to know about that lady?" Before her mother could stop her, she said "Why are you so fat?" I said "Well..when I had my son 20 years ago, I gained a lot of weight. After he was born, I not only felt sluggish and tired, I ached and hurt more. It's hard to exercise when stuff hurts. Plus (and I looked around like I was sharing a secret) I love cake and cookies. But don't tell my husband. I just didn't take care of myself...so getting back to healthy is harder now. But I'm trying." Her mother apologized for what her daughter said. I said "She didn't lie. She called it like she saw it. I don't get angry about kids wanting to know something. I'd be more concerned if they never asked and drew their own conclusions."

Real talk! I appreciate your honest approach to the situation. Instead of being sensitive and becoming offended, like most people who can't live with their insecurities do, you made it a lesson and reinforced the curious behavior, rather scold than it. I applaud you for that. I hope you're safe and happy throughout this crazy days.

My son has autism and no filter whatsoever so when a very nasty slightly psycho neighbour was nasty to me in front of my son he stood as big as he could (he was 5) and told her: you are a cow!, my neighbour went mental shouting and screaming, I was just laughing at my son, who just started to talk less than 3 months previously, that he put his first sentence to defend me. A little while later the police came knocking on my door...the POLICE! I asked my son to apologise for the sake of peace and he did so in the most spectacular way, he said to said neighbour in front of the police: I am sorry you are a cow! The police were laughing and my neighbour had to accept the apology!

The police came because a child insulted someone?

I had a friend visit with her 2 young boys. The eldest brought a friend; maybe around 8-10 years old. He stood silently as he looked around my home and asked me if I worked for a magazine because my place was so well decorated. FROM A 10 YEAR OLD BOY! It lightened my heart.
