Abbreviations (lol)

Sometimes parents feel out of touch when they see their children communicating with acronyms or emoticons. Some of the most popular are: LOL (laughing out loud), TMI (too much information), BFF (best friend forever), TTYL (talk to you later), PIR (parents in room.) Our children communicate with each other in short little bursts through texting and instant messaging. No wonder they speak to us in monosyllabic tones. Curiosity rather than judgement is an excellent way to stay current, cool and connected. 🙂
