Story - #Being13

What all youth lose when they spend hours lurking online is time to think, daydream, problem solve, read, converse with others, do homework, enjoy the beauty of nature, or engage in physical activity. For others, the price is far greater. Constantly lurking online may generate stress and sadness for vulnerable youth because it exposes them to the pain of social exclusion, the feeling that everyone else is having a wonderful time and a perfect life, and a set of numbers showing where they stand in the social order. Being 13 just got a lot more complicated.
