I was thinking today about how I’m part of the first generation of kids to grow up with internet access… I don’t think any other single factor had more of an impact on my development during adolescence. Kinda sad. I was pretty much playing with fire but it was too new for my parents to really be aware of the danger involved, although I don’t really know if it would have mattered if they had been aware. Probably not.
It makes me think about how teenagers today are the first group to really communicate via text and picture messages. Another thing that can be so damaging when given to a young kid with no rules or guidance attached.
