Episode 1.0 is about Bullying; teens discuss what it was like to be a bully, why they did it and how they felt after and how they feel now; one teen discusses how she was bullied and physically harmed when she was very young.
TALKBACK4Teens is a show where teens can talk about topics that are important to them. We are coming to you from public access television in New York: Television that means something. So much of what we see on TV and on the web is mindless, irrelevant (what passes for) entertainment, often insulting to our personhood, sensibilities, and/or intelligence. If you are a teen, join the discussion here, start or join a thread, your input will impact other episodes when we revisit this topic.
“You can’t handle the truth!” — Jack Nicholson
“If this is the way Her Majesty treats her prisoners, she doesn’t deserve to have any.” — Oscar Wilde
Do you have something to say about it? We hope you will watch and consider; perhaps you will encounter issues like the topic you see being discussed; we hope you will join the discussion; if confronted with a problem, we hope you will act proactively and rationally rather than reacting emotionally. If you are a parent or teacher or school administrator, watch, consider, and learn from teens; you may also use our shows in your health curriculum by topic, with permission.
