How does a mother protect a child these days? It's nearly impossible. Regardless of how you try, there is now texting, facebooking, bullying at school......
One way a mother can TRY, is to monitor Facebook, as I do, daily. This is how I know who these kids really are. Most of them have a different personality away from adults, but my eyes were opened pretty wide last night.
Once one negative comment goes on, the all start packing like wolves...kids that would never have to balls to say something to some one's face while looking them in the eye, all of a sudden can become vicious, mean and uncaring. I couldn't take it anymore and jumped in on the pack trying to get them to stop. Some did, but then as more started in on the "fun" more comments kept coming and coming. I got pretty pissed off and I tried to bite my tongue but I couldn't. A few of these kids were actually friends, or so I thought that she has spent a LOT of time with away from school, on the phone etc. , over the last couple of years ,and I have become pretty fond of them. One kid I've known since he was around 8, one girl she had as a team mate on one of her sports teams. I did call the one I actually adored the most an asshole after awhile and then of course they turned it on me and I got the wrath of the pack saying I was bullying children and they were going to tell their Mom's. I realized it was only going to get worse so I deleted what I could and simmered in anger for awhile. Bubba was ready and on the prowl. I realize they are just immature kids and they pulled the ugly out in me as well. We all have a little in us. One thing I do know, I will never trust these frienemies ever again.... EVER. They had me fooled and showed their true colors and they had a lot of fun and thought it was fun to hurt Stevi so much that her mom got upset. Pretty sad. I now realize that they are allowed to wallow in their own shit and that they obviously love to stir it up and don't have any other way of bullying except over the internet because they can't actually do something to someone's face and apparently have nothing better to do on a Saturday night. I had a fantastic purge party last night and unsubscribed these fabulously raised children. They sad thing is, I am friends with one of the kids parents and I would never have the heart to tell them what a shit head he is. None of these kids have respect for themselves , others or adults and it really is sad. I am done being pissed off. I can't even pity them at this point. I know one thing, I hope I never see them at the school or elsewhere, especially anytime soon. Stevi can let it go because she is so over the High School drama and is too nice to actually fight over it (she infact cares about hurting others), I on the other hand am new to this and have never been as nice and sweet as my daughter. I can be your best friend or your worst enemy, once you cross the line, I never forget....And I won't....Good luck out there kiddo's ....You will need it, Karma is one Hell of a Bitch.
