This will be a quick post. Have to run off and do my podcast. But I have come across numerous articles where the journalist tries to point out that (gasp!) teens are keeping secrets from their parents by texting messages in code only understandable to fellow teens. And it's supposed to be alarming, and frighten parents. But parents don't have to stay in the dark. There are websites parents can visit to decode their kids' texts. Here's a quick test. How many of you know what the following codes mean?
You can look them up at a decoder site. In any case, I actually am just writing about this topic to empower parents. I think parents need to come up with their own secret speak so that their teens can't read their messages. Naturally, you should all chime in with your thoughts.
Here are some:
CPMM = Can't Pay My Mortgage
GTKCF = Gambled the Kid's College Fund
SGTBAS/SGTBAB = Someone's going to be a sister/brother
INSHMY= I never should have married you
INSHHD = I never should have had kids
You know, things like that. Any ideas?
