Your Connected Life: Teens' Guide to Online Life offers tips and solutions that have been tested by teens, including balancing schoolwork and screen time, managing online relationships and reputation, and using the Internet to find the best information on health, hobbies and homework. The guide also covers the favorite online activities of teens and offers practical advice on various topics, such as cyberbullying, how to recognize an unhealthy relationship, controlling online games, downloading and copyright, secure shopping, data protection and privacy, and online information research and verification.

This guide has been developed with the objective of studying the various online problems that young people may face when they enter high school and offer them supportive support for managing the various aspects of their connected life.
