Portrait of two teenage boys playing video games

Two teenage girls with cell phone laughing

Parents of new teenagers get ready for this the next few years…

According to a new Pew Research Center study, 78-percent of girls use social media and texting to keep up with their friends.  But 84-percent of boys say they play games in-person with their friends or online.  Teens are also making new friends through technology.  More than half say they’ve made a new friend online, but most never meet an online buddy in person.

Whatever happened to the days of talking on the phone until your parents told you to get off or playing a pick up game of football or basketball with the guys at the park?
