juvenoia

(名詞) 擔心網際網路及目前社會趨勢會對小孩和青少年造成負面影響的憂慮 (但這種憂慮往往是毫無根據而且誇大的)。這個字是由 juvenile + paranoia 拼綴而成。

引句:
Is the internet really an amplifier for youth deviance, bad behavior, and risk? Or is it just the opposite? Are we simply applying age-old paranoia about youth (juvenoia) to the newest technology and coming to all the wrong conclusions?
—Sylvia Martinez, "The Internet, Youth Deviance and the Problem of Juvenoia," Generation YES Blog, December 3, 2010

And yet the overall rates of child sex crimes and of teen sex are down since the 1990s, as are juvenile crime, school violence and teen fighting. David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire, calls this distance between anxiety and reality 'juvenoia' and chalks it up to an 'exaggerated fear about the influence of social change on children.'
