Madness

This "Pee Bee Bee Teens?!" tag question should stop.

After almost a month of being absent, I was finally able to teach again earlier this afternoon. And during the course of my class, almost all my students delivered that ‘PBB Teens?’ wisecrack. If you can call it wise.

Take note, my students are six (6) to ten (10) years old.

I don’t watch that pseudo-reality show but based on what I have read, it is not a good influence on our teens. Especially on our young children who might take the housemates as their role model.

Trying my best to be nice in front of the kids, I told them to sleep early and stop watching that show because it will fry their brains.

And I told them to watch Mythbusters instead.

Who’s to blame? Their parents? The comedian who popularized that line? The TV show and its creators and producers? Or the noisier members of our society who continuously use that phrase.

Or maybe in the absence (or lack) of their parents’ guidance, it is my duty as their second guardian to teach them the difference between popular crap and good example?

I am pissed. I am disappointed. I am annoyed. But these are kids. They are in the stage of their lives when we, the elders, have to teach them what is right.

I hate that tag line. And the next time I hear it again from an elder, I swear I’m gonna slit his/her throat and pull his tongue out a la Khal Drogo.

Nah, I’m just kidding.

Be a good example to these kids. Or better yet, be a better role model.

Padayon!

    I admire such level of tolerance. There’s no way we can give up on the youth. We should help them. We should never lose...
