Advice to Gifted and Talented Youth 7 – Bullying

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

July 1, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: Now, even though there’s still a lot of bullying and there are new ways to bully people online, it’s a much more, I think, diverse personality types are more accepting. One reason is that people who were once geeks have completely reshaped the world through technology, and everybody enjoys the fruits of technology, and entertainment that focuses on stuff that was once geeky like superheroes is some of the most carefully and expensively wrought entertainment there is.

And thanks to social media, people are less isolated and can find support from each other even if their social situation at school isn’t great, but I think overall people are better informed. I mean yea everybody looks like an idiot on their cell phones.

But I think people are a little bit more grown-up because there is more information and people have more information about life. Back in my childhood, even TV was useless at telling you anything real, there were shows like or classic/beloved shows like the Brady Bunch or the Partridge family.

They barely touched on any real issues and offered no help or no real help with how to deal with stuff. They offered easy situations and platitudes, and were just kind of terrible to watch because they were so lazy.
