I can’t understand/explain why some kids feel compelled to be cruel to another person regardless of what they think the person did to merit such actions (ie… being a “slut” or being “the weird kid”)… perhaps to feel better about themselves and their own flaws? Jealousy? Who knows. It seems we are reading/hearing more and more about kids who commit suicide as a result of bullying. I was bullied as a kid and a teenager, but I never once felt like I needed to kill myself over it. Then again, I just barely escaped my teens right before internet trolling/bullying took over. I’m not victim blaming, or justifying bullying, but in addition to waging this war on bullies, perhaps we should devote some time to the mental health of teens and kids. Nowadays it is so easy to be a bully, you can even do it anonymously… so adults can’t really fathom what its like to be a kid/teen in today’s world of internet trolling and gossip spreading. I think equal time should be spent teaching kids compassion for others and addressing the mental health of your kids. At home and at school. How about we just make all these kids work and pay bills, see who still has time to go around bullying.
