  1. Its such as you read my mind! You appear to know a lot
    about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some p.c. to drive the message house a little bit, however instead of that,
    this is magnificent blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. And I agree, this is important information for everyone to learn about. There are many resources listed on my resource page that will have more information about many of the issues that teens face.

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve
    either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of
    it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any
    ways to help protect against content from being ripped off?

    I’d truly appreciate it.

    1. Hello! I can say that I haven’t run into a lot of issues with plagiarism or copyright infringement. I had a promo video that was put together for me that had an issue with a song that we had to change. I have also had content blocked on Instagram a couple of times. I do my best to quote my sources and give credit for photos I am using to help protect myself. As far as people using your content without permission, it is a hard thing to battle in the era of the internet. But, you could contact the places where you are finding your content and ask them not to use it or to at least cite you as the source of their content.
