Masternet is an online resource dedicated to helping adolescents, young adults and families find answers to life’s challenging questions. Growing up today is complicated and the issues facing kids are the product of a world radically altered from the one their parents grew up in.
With technology weaving its way into our social structure and the Internet providing parental free access to whatever their curiosity desires, kids today are being exposed mature, adult themes before they are cognitively and emotionally capable of understanding them.

Masternet not only shares informational resources for parents dealing with these kinds of circumstances, but also shares information about therapists and programs that are available to help offer structured solutions to youths engaged in negative, high risk behaviors.
