We’re living in the information age and while that means we’re all virtually connected, it can also mean we’re disconnected in reality. This dark truth takes some parents of teenagers by surprise only after it’s too late.
Kids —and parents — spend more and more time on their devices, not always talking openly with each other in the way that’s necessary to maintain a healthy relationship.
Unfortunately, it’s all to common for kids to get bullied online or to get drawn into other harmful social games. But parents often don’t know about it until after something happens. Apparently, there’s a new such game taking root in Russia and elsewhere that hides behind a peaceful-seeming whale.
