Anxiety at Teenagers' Fingertips
Tomoniko, Sylvie
BU Journal of Graduate Studies in Education, v11 n2 p4-11 2019
Teenager anxiety can be fueled by the online social interactions of today's youth. Comparing one's life with others, coping with bullying behaviour, seeking acceptance from peers, and digital addiction can all have a role in the rising anxiety today's teenagers are experiencing. Educators and parents have an important role to play in teaching teenagers how to navigate their digital environments in a safe and responsible way. Through education, students can be made aware of the risks of social media to their mental health, learn coping techniques and be directed to resources that can help to alleviate the anxiety they may be experiencing
