Here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:
For the parents among us of teenagers (God bless you), this may be comforting news:
“Mostly, kids are using social media to brag and talk about their families. Great news if you’re a parent worried everything your kid is doing online involves nudes. It probably doesn’t. Forty-nine percent of teens reported posting about accomplishments, followed by family at 44 percent. Political beliefs came in last at just 9 percent. As for purported vanity, about half of teens never or rarely post selfies. (Though girls are reportedly more likely than boys to do so, if they do at all.) And only 15 percent of teens surveyed said they frequently hide content from certain people’s — ahem, parents’ — eyes. Twenty-nine percent said they never do this. Again, ahem.”
A reader sent this link, saying “This is the reality after a school shooting. The pain goes on and on and shootings are happening so frequently that people no longer feel safe. It’s time people start to understand that it isn’t over even after years go by.”
