Parents Need to be Aware of Text Slang

Deuteronomy 6 English Standard Version (ESV)

4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.[b] 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise          


Parents need to be aware of text slang.

However, text slang appears to be something only a few adults know about or understand.

Text slang has left my generation way behind when it comes to speaking about some things that were spoken quietly in a hush tone among close friends.

But welcome to the world of “text children” who say it in text and show it with photos.

Nevertheless, the older generation shouldn’t be fearful of this text revolution. We merely need to educate and keep ourselves abreast of text wording and phrases.

So, here is just a partial list of text phrases you might have run across on your young one’s phone.
