Blogging Can Help Calm Anxious Teens: Study

THURSDAY, Jan. 12 (HealthDay News) -- Blogging appears to help teens deal with social problems, according to a new study.

"Teens are online anyway, so blogging enables free expression and easy communication with others."

"Although cyberbullying and online abuse are extensive and broad, we noted that almost all responses to our parti
