The Teenage Guide to Life Online

The Teenage Guide to Life Online is published in autumn 2018 by Walker Books. It takes a balanced look at what happens to us all – young and old – when we spend time on the internet. 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 psychology, I investigate hot topics like fake news and online privacy, 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.
