Over the years, people have come up with various ways to illustrate the troubling effects of bullying, especially on young children. This teacher's simple experiment with apples to show just how bad the circle of hate can be has resonated with several on social media. Her post has gone viral with over 1.9 lakh shares and 1.6 lakh 'likes' since June 22.

Rosie Dutton, a coach at the Tamworth branch of Britain's Relax Kids which organizes children's activities and special classes, used two similar looking apples to make her point to the kids. One had been dropped on the floor several times and the other was used as it were. Both the apples looked the same and the children were neither told nor could make out any difference between them.

She then said some really horrible things for the not-so-perfect apple. "We really pulled this poor apple apart. I actually started to feel sorry for the little guy," she says on Facebook.

The children joined her in the activity by  praising the other one.

Eventually she cut open both the apples and "there was a lightbulb moment for the children immediately."

In the most subtle way, this exercise tells us to be nicer to the world around us because our actions can have a devastating impact on others.

We'll let you read the post in its entirety so, like the children in the class, you too experience the exact effect of the experiment.
