Thank you for your great response. I think it’s incredibly telling that MY reaction when I first heard this story was OH MY GOD WHERE WERE THE IDIOT PARENTS. Me! The person who wrote this thing! This whole situation definitely has me examining not only my own online practices but also my knee jerk reactions every damn day. I have a lot of work to do.
