Being a teenager is, perhaps, one of the most interesting, intense, and complicated periods in the life of almost any person. In our teen years, our experiences are especially acute and exiting; this age is connected with one’s search of place in the world, of self-identification, and belonging. Teenagers face real world problems more and more often, as well as encounter their first serious challenges and problems: at home, at school, in their relationships. The need to develop new behavioral models and adapt to social norms, and look for one’s place in one’s society can be stressful for a teenager. There are several influential factors that are seen as stressful for adolescents.
No matter what social networks they use, teenagers are exposed to the same dangers. Remember that social networks are never related to the actual reality. Instead, they allow you to see what others want you to see. Unfortunately, what you see is usually far from the reality. This is one of the main minuses of online interactions. Plenty of people hide their actual identities behind some screens. At some point, the actual communication goes in the wrong direction. The same rule applies to the actual relationship. Whether you make a new friend or you talk to someone you have not seen in a while, chances are you will be introduced to a completely different person.
