According to the latest data, 70.5% of teens have experienced cyber bullying, 45.6% engaged in conversations about anxiety or depression, 72.1% encountered sexual content and 35.9% experienced self-harm/suicidal thoughts. These statistics can seem overwhelming and downright frightening as a parent, but there is an ally in the fight to protect our children from an increasingly connected and documented world.
