I consider myself relatively up-to-date with modern day technology, social networks and other internet trends in general. But, oh boy, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Teen texting codes? Did you have any idea how much things are different now, as opposed to just few years ago when we were teens? Okay, maybe more than few years but anyhow…
I remember the time when I said motherhood won’t change me, and I will never ever become a boring old lady completely oblivious of trends and new stuff. But generation gaps have always existed, and you can only fight it to some point. New generations will always come that will do things faster than us, that will be more tech smart, and teens will know about all the new cool bands and will laugh behind our backs when we ask what a spinner is. I know, it’s annoying. But it’s the natural way of how things develop, even more with new technological advancements.
With all the new social networks, we parents simply can not keep up. Kids, even very young kids, have access to a smart phone, an I Pad or something of that sort. Things get even more trickier when they reach the teen years. Teens are naturally inclined to getting in trouble :). And the scary part is you can only know as much as they decide to share with you. With online dangers lurking all the time we need to establish some control over their internet activities, and in the same time try not to invade their privacy (or not all the way probably) and let them socialize with their peers.
This list of teen texting codes got me off guard. I have never heard about 99% of these, and while some of them are harmless, some are short codes for stuff I wouldn’t want my daughter to go into.
