Below are my favorite TED Talks from teens. From girls who have published their own books to those who have discovered helpful bacteria, these talks will motivate you to reach your goals, no matter where you are in the process. Svitak speaks about her own experiences and how listening to children can be beneficial. If one side does not listen to the other, you could be missing out on great new ideas or opinions you never considered. My favorite thing about this talk is that it bridges a gap between parents and children while giving insight into a point many kids are still making today.
More comfortable online than out partying, post-Millennials are safer, physically, than adolescents have ever been. O ne day last summer, around noon, I called Athena, a year-old who lives in Houston, Texas. We chatted about her favorite songs and TV shows, and I asked her what she likes to do with her friends. I have to check in every hour or every 30 minutes. Those mall trips are infrequent—about once a month. More often, Athena and her friends spend time together on their phones, unchaperoned.

Summary of Findings. A new nationally representative survey of American teenagers shows that nearly all teens age 94 percent use social media platforms. This study by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research points to Snapchat, a multifaceted application for sharing short-lived images and video narratives as well as engaging with news, and Instagram, a photo and video sharing application, as the most popular social media platforms among teens. Building on historically greater uptake of smartphones, black teens are more likely to use certain social media platforms—especially those designed and optimized for mobile use—and to use Instagram and Snapchat more frequently than white teens.
