The Teenage Guide to Life Online takes a balanced, clear and super-informed look at what happens to us all – young and old – when we spend time on the internet or screens. In this book, I explore the pros and cons of life in the Digital Age, from the information explosion to the growth of social media. Using best evidence and strong understanding of psychology, I investigate hot topics like fake news and online privacy, multi-tasking and distraction, addiction and over-use, and draw on fascinating, cutting-edge research into how the internet and screen-use affect our ability to concentrate, our mood and sleep patterns.
This is a book for families to share: a way for teenagers, their parents and carers to inform themselves about the many advantages and risks of life online. With strategies!
