Abstract:

FRONTLINE examines the very public private worlds that kids are creating online, raising important questions about how the Internet is transforming childhood. Not so long ago, the digital world was the province of adults, business, and the world of work. Today, there is a very definite teen cyberculture, developed by kids who are growing up online. This digital world provides a private space, where kids communicate with their friends, do schoolwork, and also face the dangers posed by predators and cyberbullies. The Internet is forging a society with fundamentally different properties, leaving parents grapple with the question of how to manage kids interactions with a world where the partition between public and private has effectively disappeared.
