“It was so devastating to hear my daughter tell me this morning that she just didn’t like the way she looked,"

"It broke my heart.”

Before talking about what made Sydney utter those terrible words, Coates started to look ahead to her daughter's future and looked back to her past where she had been bullied because of her ethnicity; she began to panic that the same might behold for her little toddler. 

Coates then began to tell what had happened: Some children at her 4-year-old daughter's school had shunned her away from their "princess tent" party because her skin was dark. That struck the 4-year-old to feel insecure about her skin. 

At the end of the video, Coates pleaded with her viewers, asking for their help,

If anyone has any suggestions for me about what I can do to make my daughter feel what I know she is — because dropping her off at school this morning almost killed me.

It was really a heartwrenching moment to listen to the almighty Laura Coates, who was such a loving mother, asking for her viewers' help for a change!
