Under the heading of “reviews elsewhere” comes this review of a short film called “Rope”, a raw, honest depiction of online bullying.
““If you’re in your 40s or 50s and someone sends you a cruel message, you can probably brush it off, but if you’re 15 it is much more likely to affect you because you haven’t had the chance to build up that mental resilience.”
There is a link to the film in the article below, but it does also come with.a warning about what is being depicted, so please be careful. On the other hand, if you have teens in your life, be aware of what kinds of things go on, and how it may be impacting them. Mainly, maybe we can understand the comment above, and start making sure we are teach teens how to brush it off, how to be resilient, and how to recognize their own self-worth, in addition to teaching them not to bully others.
That sounds like a lot, but shrugging our shoulders and saying “kids with be kids” surely isn’t working.
