School starts again on Tuesday.
We can all hark back to the butterflies that first day gave us no matter what the grade.
But life is a lot different now than it was when we were kids.
The number one cause of anxiety in kids today, pre Labour Day?
Not what teacher they’ll get, not who will be in their class, not homework, but who will bully them on social media.
What will be said about them from those hiding behind a screen.
What is odd is this isn’t a threat to post secondary students where bullying stats nose dive. Why?
One psychologist says they’re older and the victim would simply tell them to ‘piss off’, as he put it.
So why can’t kids tell them to do the same.
Perhaps because kids have been taught not stand up, but back away.
I’m not trying to instigate violence but if we teach respect at the very early ages, maybe it wouldn’t be an issue in school, no matter what the year..
