Oh how teens love to text! Communication with our teens is critical during this stage in their lives and if we can get through to them even slightly, I think we can claim success. Albeit challenging at times (ok, most of the time), sometimes we need to get on THEIR level in order to communicate with those little sweetie pies especially when they are out with friends. You just don’t know what they could be up to and that is why checking in on them isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
So moms and dads, instead of calling to check on your kids every hour, how about a nice little text message?
Here are some suggestions for parents on how to communicate with their children via text messages:
*Hope UR having fun. Stay smart. Luv u
*Be ur self. Be safe
*I’m lucky ur my kid. Luv u
*Thx for being so great. Have fun. Stay safe
*If u need me – call me
*Remember, I trust u. Love ya
*Remember our talk. Love u and have fun.
*Be careful and have fun.
*Let me know where u r when u have a min. thx
*Give me a call when u get a chance. Luv u
*I’m always here if u need to talk.
Oh and teens love emojis, so if you could throw a few of those in there, you’re golden.
Do you text your teenager???
