“A generation of children is being ‘raised online’ because of the amount of time they spend on the internet, new research claims.  Youngsters spend more than 20 hours a week online, says a report from the Institute for Public Policy Research.”

Many young people are now “constantly connected” to the internet, the report says, staying up until the early hours of the morning on computers in their bedrooms.  Many leave their mobile telephone on overnight in case they receive a new text message.
