School Shootings & Unwise Secrets

Today I had to report a potential school shooting and learned just how some of these situations occur. If you follow my blog, you know my children are my world. I am sure nobody wants to see their children upset, but sometimes we as parents, must push that button.

For some reason two teens have decided to talk amongst their friends about bringing guns to school because of an argument. My daughter took the- it’s not me, it’s them approach and casually brought it to my attention. I had to inform her that it very well could be you, your friends, teachers, or even a parent walking down the sidewalk. After I called the school and notified them of the situation my daughter stormed into her room.

I gave her a few minutes to calm down, and then I took her for a ride and explained , the someone knew situation. In any situation, at any given time before the crap hit the fan, someone knew. Someone unfortunately was just a little too scared to mention the situation to an adult. She responded by saying a teacher was right there when the guys were talking about bringing the gun to school and that she even told them violence was stupid. Yet, she didn’t want to report it because she feared losing her friends. I fear she isn’t the only child that gets paralyzed with fear. We talk to our children about drugs, sex, and bringing home good grades. Yet, we do not talk to our children about snuffing out the snitch culture.

We must take the time to explain to our children how important it is to always do the right thing. Kids seldom keep things to themselves and often times they talk about their plans. Some years ago some young guys were talking in the general chat area of World Of Warcraft. They talked about how they raped and killed a girl. Someone reported it and the young men were soon caught after the conversation tool place.

This is one time that I’m actually proud to be a double agent! I am the proud mom and mischievous blogger. This is also why I choose to keep my activities away from my children’s friends by writing in disguise! We learn so much from kids and it’s by that knowledge that we are able to implement better safety measures. Watch and learn.

KPOP Inspired

I wanted to show how my daughter’s dramas are doing. It’s hard to believe she turned 13 last month and she’s already writing dramas. When I was her age I was playing in the woods with my relatives. If memory has it right, we were playing wizards. We would grab onto sticks and belts and play like we were magical creatures. It often resulted in cut lips, missing teeth, but it was fun! 

This is part one.

This is Two

This is four.

If you like BTS, Blackpink or other KPOP groups, I think you will like her story. 

On another note, I get a stank faces when people find out that my daughter likes KPOP, but here’s the thing! People of all races and nationalities can enjoy a wide range of things. Do not limit yourself by placing yourself into a box. Enjoy life while you can because the ability to enjoy it might not always be there.
