In this episode of The Hard Stuff, Nigel Latta focusses on young people and their online activities. Latta examines the generation gap between parents and teenagers who as 'digital natives' can't imagine a world without smartphones. Social scientist Luke Goode and sex education expert Maree Crabbe discuss the fears parents have about technology and its affects on 'real world' relationships. Internet Safety expert Brett Lee audits the Ross family with surprising results. Latta meets Maddie, a teenager from Central Otago who used her own painful experience to create Sticks and Stones, a school anti-online bullying programme.
