Teens and social media mix - sometimes with very bad results

Every generation thinks that the young people who come after them are incredibly different. For some people, the fact that kids wear helmets these days when they do just about anything, from riding bicycles to roller skating, is strange since many people would never have thought to do so when they were children - and their parents never mentioned it.

For example, probation departments across the country look at recidivism rates - the rate at which probationers re-offend - to determine whether or not they are taking the right approach to probation supervision.
