    Default What do you think about this from a teen?

    Haven't read all the pp, but good on you for doing what you've done/are doing!!

    I would actually show her a documentary on aids, and the effects of bullying on people until she can honestly portray why these things are not acceptable.

    The issue I believe is that the kids jut don't understand, and how would they if they don't get some sort of shock awakening to it!

    Well done!!

    I agree with this. I don't think being a teenager allows you to post such horrible stuff. My 8 yr old knows how awful it is to say someone is going to get cancer (incident at his school). Why should he be excused at 14 just because he's a teenager? I don't get it? Do teens just lose all senses?

    i read in a book that as parents we are the guard rails to our kids in order to keep them on track til they reach the end of the dangerous road. i love it. such a good analogy. a guard rail wouldn't let a car drive off the road jsut because it wans't road worthy or because it was doing what every other car was doing.

    Love the guard rail analogy. When those rails are taken away too soon, or the rails are too wide, one can really go off the rails!!

    I am so glad you guys have taken her on. It must be a hard road for everyone xx

    I have a 13 year old and see a great deal of the same thing on Facebook when stalking her account.
