Book Summary, "Generation Myspace"
Generation MySpace: Helping Your Teen Survive Online Adolescence (2007)
By: Candice M. Kelsey
MySpace, Facebook, and YouTube have become a way of life for most teens. The time they spend online affects teens' life in many ways. It's how they define themselves, their self-esteem, and their friendships.
Children insist that all this time online is "no big deal," but is it? Educator Candice M. Kelsey helps parents determine what they should or should not worry about when their child goes online. This book is one of the first guides to the online world of adolescence. It discusses the appeal of MySpace, online friendships, privacy issues, predators & cyber-bullies, and more.
