Overview

Young people spend many hours each day online, and their abilities to multi-task and communicate are often misunderstood by parents and educators. Cyber bullying, addiction, sexuality, and virtual friendships are only a few of the complex situations kids confront online. Dr. Larry Rosen offers a full overview of these issues while challenging our commonly held beliefs that these communities are damaging. With his extensive background in both child development and the impact of technology, Dr. Rosen uses down-to-earth explanations of sound psychological theory, incorporates groundbreaking research, and shows parents and educators how social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook can improve adolescents' socialization skills and their overall emotional health.
