I’ve seen it before but watched it again tonight. I can relate in so many ways. I was bullied online and offline. I can say I’ve done my share of it online too. But now I’m older and wouldn’t do anything like that. I wasn’t done like the girl on the show. Because back in my teen yrs there was no internet like there is now. I remember my mother having a computer and it was a black green with green writing.
When I was 18, I started using the internet everyday. I use to LOVE using “Pow wow” and some people may have never heard of it. Also ICQ was a big hit back then as well. I use to get online with my brothers ex-wife and chit-chat. I use to make my own websites and graphics, which were crappy. I am almost 34 and been online all these yrs. There have been some times where I wasn’t because I didn’t have a computer or couldn’t afford the internet.
I could STILL live without the internet, but I choose not to. lol
Anyways, I want my kids to watch that movie. I want them to understand being a bully in not cool. My daughter Vanity was bullied by this girl who bullied all the kids where I lived. She had to move. Why? Because everyone was going to the landlord and telling her how her daughter was bullying all the kids and the mother never did anything about it. Some kids may bully other kids because they’re not happy with their life. Maybe someone is picking on them, maybe they’re depressed. I sometimes see Vanity bullying on her brother and sister. I’m not sure she knows that she’s doing it. I just think she thinks that she’s older and can be the boss. Which I’ve told her she’s not and she can’t do the stuff she does.
It’s so hard being a single mother of 4 kids. I do it all alone. I am the father and mother here. Some people just do not know what that’s like and what our life is like.
Anyhow, it’s my bed time.. Good night
