What is wrong with this bloody generation the parents out there in there 30's and 40's who are producing this group of morally selfish and un-resilient kids. As a parent I know that they have to face some of the blame for these kids and their actions.
When did it become ok for parents to go online and bully teenage girl/boys because of a perceived slight to their little angel.
When did it become ok for teens to become stalkers or bullies relying on the cover of the internet, and why do some parents think that is ok?
When did it become normal for young kids to be terrorised by social media and for social media to not put in place protection that works.
Cowards abound out in this invisible hyper space of technology, they use an invisible face to spout out crap and threats and though many are young impressionable kids making these immature threats it is also adults.
I use to think we grow mature as we age but now I believe that unless we working on becoming emotionally older and hopefully wiser then we are stuck in some emotional point in our life that has no relationship to our chronological age, and unfortunately there seems to be many adults out there with the emotional age of a pre-teen. How else do you explain the fact that there are so many kids and adults using social media to bully and sexually exploit other kids.
I always thought that our teens where the times that we learnt who we where, learnt many lessons and made many mistakes and grew and become resilient. Why is it that we now have a generation growing up who has been taught that they are so special just because they where born. Work at school- why, become special at a sport/art/music ect by working hard to stand out-why, to put in an increased effort means increased gains-why
Out their in our schools some kids do shit bloody all and are treated the same as those who are trying to work hard and learn, everyone has to be equal because of some stupid idea that we are hurting kids feelings by not rewarding them, give me a break folks, how is that working out.
We have a lazy entitled bunch of whiners whose mummy and daddies think it is normal to bully other kids who are perceive as better than their little darlings, who think it is ok to bully their teaches for placing normal boundaries and expectations on their children, who think it is normal to go to universities and into the job force and bully professors and bosses! REALLY and now we have a new generation who are self serving and believe that the world owes them.
Then we have those kids whose parents have taught them to grow and learn from there mistakes to work hard and to be resilient and grow to be productive adults, and what do they see folks, the self entitled little darlings blocking there way by being bully's and cowards and using social media to harm and blackmail and to spread lies about those who they think stand in their way.
What a world I am growing old in and my kids are working in. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to try to be positive and resilient in this world that seems to just reward bad behaviour. Crying tears today because of the way this country and world seems to be heading - every thing about ones self and fuck every one else and may the selfish thrive.
No happy thought to end this rant today
