Teenage is always a difficult time, but the current generation of teens in India is facing an unprecedented struggle with a forced double persona – online and offline. While parents of every generation do have new challenges, we have largely been able to fall back on age-old wisdom to help the children to come into their own and bloom into adulthood. This time though, it is different. Most parents have no clue about the world their teens live in, and the dangers that accost them. Addictions are not restricted to alcohol and cigarettes, the range has expanded to include online gaming, social media stalking, drugs, and much more.

Join us for a Kidskintha Chaiversation with Jyotsna Mohan Bhargava, a senior NDTV news editor and anchor, who has uncovered the real deal behind the smokescreen of today’s teens’ lives in her latest book, ‘Stoned Shamed Depressed- An Explosive Account Of The Secret Lives Of India’s Teens.’
