This is a game an everyone does not know the rules. Yes, we can say that key are soft but that's a cop out. when you think about it, clownin/cyberbullying, is a game, a war of words if you will. the other person doesn't understand how to play the game or how to be good at it to defend themselves. Back then if someone was bullied, you put them in a self defense class. It would build their self-esteem and prepare them. When that kid would stand up to the bully and defend them self, it would let everyone know that this kid is not the person to mess with. The same goes for clowning. There are two examples that come to mind: The video from ig that can be found on YouTube called 'Mom teaches her son how to roast kids before first day of school'. The second video that can also be found on YouTube is called 'how to roast/joke/fire up/hi-side/blow someone up' by @supremedreams_1
Both are good examples of teaching a kid to defend themselves against this bullshit.
I wish there was a place where kids go to learn about character and self esteem. Kinda like a boys and girls club but something where they can learn to defend themselves against verbal bulling. A place where kids can feel safe from the jokes but also learn to crack jokes in order to defend themselves. so when they get into situations like this, they can say something to either get the other person to shut up or get everyone else laughing.
Look up 8-year-old Gabe Taye. He killed himself behind this bullying.
Over the last year, I've seen several grown adults quit jobs over this shit and I'm tired of it.
