Why we can’t save kids from bullying

As adults, we set an example for kids, even ones that aren’t our own and ones that we’ll never meet. Kids aren’t the only ones being bullied or bullying each other. Forums and comment sections are full of abuse of all kinds. Most of it is unwarranted. This blog, is subject to some abuse and for stupid reasons, mostly from reposting LOLcats and FailBlog. I can’t understand people that surf the web looking for people to dump on. Yes, you are anonymous (somewhat, I look up and report EVERY instance of abuse and harassment) but there are kids and teens online seeing all of this and they are following our example. If there is any hope of stopping ‘the bullying epidemic’ we need to stop it ourselves.

And, if you are thinking of posting a degrading, mean-spirited or rude comment, don’t bother. I’m not a wuss and neither is anyone else who you try to victimize. I will just report you to your ISP, they will investigate and I will delete your comment before it’s even seen. If you have a constructive, intellectual or theoretical comment that you can present in a civil manner, I’d love to hear from you and we can discuss and debate all day. If you want kids to change, snuff out the cyber-bullying. Ignore it, diffuse it, delete it.

  1. You go girl! You have said it clearly and succinctly! Now if everyone would just sit up and take notice that to be a bully just shows that you are not a nice person and that maybe you need to get an attitude change, life is too short to not be nice, loving and caring towards each other and all our animal friends. ( Except for nasty rogue roosters, flies, mosquitos, and most spiders!) Oh, congrats on the awards also, you work hard and deserve all those pats on the back! You are the SHIT! LOL! AMIL
