I am probably going to have to pull my daughter out of her highschool and do online schooling. She is threatening to quit in her senior year if I don’t. This is what they are telling her on social media:
She is a fat ugly bitch.
She is a buck toothed bitch
She’s a whore
She trades oral sex for rides to work
They are threatening to bring double cheeseburgers to school and throw them at her
She should probably kill herself, because no one likes her
She has been staying off of social media, but they are saying things to her in the halls of the school and in the class rooms. This all started because she got involved with something she probably shouldn’t have. She found out her friend’s little sister who is a freshman is doing drugs and having sex. She told her friend and then they both went to the friend’s Mom about it. The little sister found out, and now she and her friends are ochestrating all of this. The worst part? THERE IS NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT.
My daughter has not been perfect on social media, but I have paid attention to what she does to the best of my ability. She has never treated anyone like she is being treated. Social media has become this place where kids can go and do whatever they want, without supervison or consequences. You can can check their phones and the computers in your home, but it isn’t enough. It is too easy for them to gain access through their friends and have accounts you don’t know about and wouldn’t find if you looked. Not that I think all of these kids parents would care even if they knew. Quite often, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
I’m calling the school tomorrow to tell them about what they are threatening to do at school, and then I’m pulling her out. This isn’t the first time she has dealt with bullying, but it is by far the worst.
Parents and soon to be parents, please pay attention to what your kids are doing on the internet. Most adults who act like this online know they can’t get away with treating people they barely know like this IRL. Usually this kind of abuse is saved for their nearest and dearest. It isn’t like that for teens. What happens online gets translated into real life behavior.
