I couldn’t sleep and was watching a CNN special on school bullying with Anderson Cooper. One of his guests was Dr. Phil, which eventually had me changing the channel, but not before I caught a panel of teens talking about the role of adults in the bully formula. It turns out if teens trust the adults to act, they will be more apt to approach them about a bully.
And then I started surfing and the remote found it’s way to one of the Housewives episodes. I have long since given up on who the characters are, but there were two of the housewives and their “gay friend” snarking about another housewife and her taste in shoes and attire.
It seems when bullies grow up and graduate high school, they find their way onto reality TV and proudly show the teens how right they were to not trust them.
