So, I can speculate. Everyone needs a villain in their lives. Without a real villain, the imagination takes over, with the likely assistance of an influential adult to feed that need. In time, I trust they will wake up to this, but I don't know if it will be before I shuffle off this mortal coil. I hope everyone else's kids are less stubborn.
I am so sorry to hear that about your kids. I have had a similar experience with a niece who is constantly brainwashed by her malicious mom (my sister-in-law ) into believing that everybody in her family is a monster. She does this mainly through social media, so I couldn’t agree with you more about social media. For something that was envisioned as a way to bring people together, the unintended consequences were that evil people can now reach out and touch other people’s lives without ever having to leave their home. People can now say and do things to others that they would never consider saying or doing to another human being IRL. I’m too lazy to do the research at the moment but I am willing to bet that beginning with the advent of social media platforms, there is a concomitant rise in mental disease like depression, anxiety, and suicide - especially in kids who have grown up with the pestilence of social media without first establishing their own common sense and feelings of self-worth.
(And yes, I am aware of the hypocrisy of stating this on a social media platform 🙂)
