Groundbreaking developments in adolescent brain research underpin this straightforward guide to understanding - and dealing with - teen behavior. Adolescence has long been characterized as the “storm and stress” years, and with recent developments in digital communication, it seems today’s teens are in for a more complicated journey than ever before. Even the most sympathetic, “in-touch” parents might throw their hands up in frustration at their teen’s unpredictable and risky behavior and ask: what are they thinking?! It turns out that teens’ thrill-seeking activities and quests for independence aren’t just the result of raging hormones, but rather typical effects of the unique structure and development of the adolescent brain. In easily navigable chapters full of practical anecdotes and examples, acclaimed scientists Aaron White and Scott Swartzwelder draw from the most recent studies on the teen brain to illuminate the complexities of issues such as school, driving, social networking, video games, and mental health in kids whose crucial brain connections are just coming online. 1.

Social networking has been an integral part of our life, before the advent of internet era people used to communicate personally or through mobiles or phones but people today are connecting themselves through Social Networking Sites. Social Network Sites (SNSs) such as MySpace, Facebook, Cyworld, and Bebo have attracted millions of users. It s nearly impossible in this day and age not to know about Facebook. Facebook is a social networking site that started out strictly for college students and was available by invitation only. According to the Pew Internet Project, Facebook is the most dominant social network among teens, used by 85% of teenagers who use social networks. Facebook was designed to support distinct college networks only. Facebook began in early 2004 as a Harvard-only SNS. To join, a user had to have a harvard.edu email address. Beginning in September 2005, Facebook expanded to include high school students, professionals inside corporate networks, and, eventually, everyone. With over 30 million unique users, Facebook in India is growing at an average of 7-8% every month.
This book investigates how narcissism, violence and social networking impact upon our society by exploring narcissistic traits specifically in an online environment, and the covert and overt violence which can result. Psychological and sociological theories are explored and the research suggests there is a growing narcissism epidemic in Western countries, with the resultant violence evident from a growing cyberculture, including cyberbullying and suicide. The increase of these maladaptive traits is evidenced through the medium of young adult literature.
From texting and social networking sites to after-school activities, young people have many opportunities to interact with one another, and yet loneliness and isolation trouble today's youth in increasing numbers. Many children and teens report feeling lonely even in the midst of family and friends, and childhood loneliness is a prime risk factor for adult alienation.Lonely Children and Adolescents: Self-Perceptions, Social Exclusion, and Hope illuminates seldom-explored experiences of social isolation among young people as well as the frustrations of the parents and teachers who wish to help. This groundbreaking book conceptualizes loneliness not simply as the absence of social connections, but as a continuum of developmental experience, often growing out of the conflict between opposite needs: to be like one's peers yet be one's unique self. The author draws clear distinctions between loneliness and solitude and identifies genetic and environmental characteristics (i.e., social, psychological, familial, and educational) that can be reinforced to help children become more resilient and less isolated. In addition, therapeutic approaches are described that challenge loneliness by encouraging empowerment, resilience, and hope, from proven strategies to promising tech-based interventions.Highlights include:- Developmental perspectives on loneliness.- Schools and the role of teachers, from preschool to high school.- Peer relations (e.g., cliques, bullies, exclusion, and popularity).- Lonely children, lonely parents: models of coping.- Loneliness in the virtual world.- Prevention and intervention strategies at home, at school, in therapy.Asking its readers to rethink many of their assumptions about social competence and isolation, this volume is essential reading for researchers and professionals in clinical child, school, developmental, and educational psychology, allied education disciplines, social work, and social and personality psychology.
