This subject makes me crazy. I cannot stand the way some kids treat others. I know there are exceptions but for the most part, it starts at home. How are these parents raising their children to make them go out into the world and be so damn unkind and in many cases down right fucking vicious?
Too many kids are committing suicide. And too many parents are in denial about their child’s lack of character and ethics. Parents need to wake up and schools across America have got to take this seriously and implement strong anti-bullying campaigns. Not just preachy, ‘this is wrong’ blah, blah, blah bullshit but a hands on get in their face and make them realize the consequences program. I am fortunate, I have not had to deal with this issue in raising my kids but countless families do, my heart goes out to them. We need to reach these children and change their hearts.
