Welcome to It Gets Better

Bullying and teen suicide are nothing new, but in recent years we have become increasingly aware of the damage bullying does ― to both children and adults alike ― with what seems to be a sudden spike in teen suicides related to being bulled.

 

The death of a child, particularly at his or her own hands, is never acceptable. It is a blight on human society that schools do not do more to prevent this, that parents can raise their children to be mean and spiteful to others, and that bullied kids don't have a support system on which they can rely when they are faced with feelings of despair and isolation.

 

The content of this group will undoubtedly be difficult to deal with. It is painful to see children ostracized from their peers, and made to feel as if they don't matter or don't belong. Of course, bullying is not confined to schools, either. Many adults experience bullying at home or in the workplace as well. All these issues will be explored in this group.

oh yeah I love that Dexter show -- yeah I understand what you mean Sentient.

Comment by Susan Stanko on December 13, 2011 at 11:01am

Don't watch Dexter, but I did live in Chicago Heights for ten years which is basically a ghetto.

I have had fantasies regarding duct tape, a wheel chair, and the I-205 on-ramp.....  Should I be admitting that?

Comment by Sentient Biped on December 13, 2011 at 10:52am

Susan Stanko, thanks.  Have you been studying Dexter?  I'm not in Miami, but the Columbia River here is mighty and deep, and has lots of hungry fishes.....

Yeah me too Loren -- I have a list too.

[Loren breaks out a bit of Gilbert & Sullivan and dusts off a rusty 2nd Tenor voice]:

I have a little list.
They never will be missed!

Susan Stanko: Hitwoman!

 

Ooohh, I like the sound of that!

Comment by Steph S. on December 13, 2011 at 10:14am
Hugs for everyone! We all understand how hard it is to discuss these matters. Brings up bad memories.
