Amanda Todd

After the suicide of Amanda Todd as the result of being bullied, Benny and Rafi Fine interviewed teens to get their reaction to Amanda’s video. Their responses are heartfelt and encouraging, and toward the end of the video they give great advice for other bullied teens. One young man, however, warns that what parents actually know about what goes on is only the tip of the iceberg.

So what is wrong with society today that high school has become such a miserable time for so many?  So miserable they’d rather end their lives than tolerate it for one more day?

Thoughts?

    Where are the teachers and parents? They need to watch the kids. The kids need to be spanked them when they don’t behave. None of this happened in my day because parents watched the kids and spanked them when they didn’t behave.

      Thanks for stopping by. Times certainly have changed. Life today is so hectic and children have access to so many media, I fear many parents have no clue what their children are up to.
