The Internet-Splintered Teen Psyche

Walt Mueller, of the Center For Parent and Youth Understanding, blogs about how the Internet fosters secret lives:
Kids are becoming masters of living a multiplicity of entirely separate selves depending on where they are at the moment. The universe known as the Internet has certainly fostered this reality. And depending on which world you’re living in, the people closest to you in that world know virtually nothing about your self that lives in the other.
It's not called the Net for nothing, as it can easily ensnare our children. Comfortingly, wasn't it a net that our Lord used to convince Peter of His mastery over every tool invented by humans?
