The authoritative guide to the online world by the award-winning author of Blame My Brain, The Teenage Guide to Stress and The Teenage Guide to Friends.
From the award-winning author of Blame My Brain, The Teenage Guide to Stress and The Teenage Guide to Friends comes The Teenage Guide to Life Online, a balanced look at what happens to us all – young and old – when we spend time on the internet. Nicola Morgan explores the pros and cons of life in the Digital Age, from the information explosion to the growth of social media. Opening with a brief history of the web she then explores hot topics like fake news and online privacy, and draws 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.
