I thought I would write a little bit about social media and the problems it can create when people use it to vent their anger.
The problem is that this anger doesn't then dissapear, it remains out there for all to see. All sort of vulnerabilities are expressed and left awkwardly exposed. Our children, whatever their age, can be victims of this both as victims and perpetrators. Through not realising what happens when tempers are frayed on line, through not understanding why other people are saying things like this to them, to not knowing how to react or how to stop. At the same time the social dependency on social media is pervasive. Friendship depends on being liked, on a thumbs up, communicating with a range of emoticons that no-one understands.
No wonder we're confused.
