It's a shame that children are bullied. Sometimes, they are even picked on by their families. Often these parents think this will make the child stronger, but often it becomes a form of abuse, and the kid becomes an abuser.
When I was young, I was teased but that teasing was gentle compared to what goes on these days. It has advanced to something more than verbal. With technology, the child can't get away from the bullying because it's on social media like FB or Twitter.
What is causing this horrible trend? Movies like Mean Girls and some shows on television glamorize bullies and make young people think this is the thing to do. Parents don't have time to give attention to their kids.
When I was a child there were family dinners, and we ate together and talked about what was going on in our lives. We played games after the dishes were done, and we laughed and talked.
These days the lives of children and everyone are stressful. What do think needs to be done to stop bullying?
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful week, and I'll see you next Sunday.
