Saying that this is just the real world is bunk. This is the world as internet socialites would have you believe. When you are sitting in from of a screen, alone, the anonymity alone is often enough to embolden people to say things they might not normally say in civilized conversation. The problem is inherent in the medium of conversation.By saying that a 9 year old needs to learn to grow up and face real life is not only calloused, but dismissive of the concerns of a parent. You are, of course, entitled to your own opinion. However, this type of rhetoric is simply a symptom of the issue I mentioned above. It is easy to be rude, cruel, or vulgar without someone standing in front of you cracking their knuckles.
