In less than two months, two teens have made it to the top trends for all the wrong reasons.
One was a teen whose manager deemed it fit to share her Google history on social media for his own defence.
The other is a boy who was obviously agitated by one of his classmates calling him gay or rather spreading rumours about him.
I am not here to express my shock.
I am however concerned that we, the grown-ups would be fist to rake the teens over the coals, to the extent of turning it into cyberbullying. And oh yeah, we have fun while at it.
I've seen parents, brothers and sisters express shock about the words that boy was using in that video.
I am not shocked myself because a replica of the profanity is happening all over. Only that it is not documented.
Our kids are angels when they are in our presence and mini-devils when we are away. That is a fact I also don't want to accept.
Kids as young as nine are having sex more than their parents do. They are watching horror movies. They are watching pornographic sites that some parents know nothing about.
They are in WhatsApp groups where nude pictures are shared and coded language is used for communication. They are chatting with sugar mummies and sugar daddies. Our kids are playing internet games we can’t monitor.
They are doing all these things and guess who has facilitated them? You guessed right. We do.
