The preadolescence is a transitional phase between the childhood and the adolescence and occurs between the ages of 8-11.

In the 21st century, new technologies are part of life and the social reality of young people. Social networks are a powerful tool of communication but can become a great danger if parents and educators do not teach young people how to use them prudently, because it is impossible to stop their need to be “connected”.
