  1. That’s a relief.

    For me, when I was a teenager the youth culture was increadably destructive, skipping school, trying to be rock stars instead of thinking about a career, drugs.

    I often worry the internet is making youth culture (immaturity) even more unbridled as it can be carried out away from mature adults.

    The only problem I have with this study is it only asks the teenagers what they think, perhaps teachers, parents (maybe even police) should be asked.

  2. I dont think the above was clear enough.

    What I’m trying to say is the teenageres may report the net is improving their social relations but these relations may be destructive, putting the kids in a immaturity “ghetto”, more able to disregard mature and wise advice.

    There is of course a general disinterest in maturity and wisdom, may 50 year olds wish they were teenagers.
