With all the stories we hear about cyber-bullying, teen sexting, and online predators, it’s easy for adults to feel concerned about the young people out there.
Many parents worry: Why do all the kids nowadays have to post every moment of their lives online for the whole world to see? Do they even care about privacy?
The fact is, kids aren't nearly as naïve as the world paints them to be. A new study by Pew indicates that, while it might look like they’re oblivious to privacy, kids are as good - if not better - than adults at keeping their online privacy in check.
