#Being13: Inside the Secret World of Teens

CNN recently aired a special on the digital lives of 8th Grades.  The report is fascinating exploration of the perils and pitfalls of the online world for many teenagers.

There was one statistic that stood out to me:

94% of parents underestimate how much social media conflicts their kids were involved in.   

Whoa.

@KellyRipa stated on Twitter "Imagine 8th grade with a real time popularity scoreboard.  That is what #being13 is like today."
