Texting Dictionaries for Parents of Digital Kids

Do you sometimes wonder about the meaning of all those shortened words and acronyms that arrive in kids’ e-mails and text messages?

Check out the Texting Dictionary of Acronyms, published by C.G. Publishing in 2011. I purchased mine at a gift shop, but it’s available on the web. I’ve fun pulling it out of my purse or book bag when someone mentions one the the lesser known shortened words that often arrive in text messages of people under twenty-five years old. And there’s even a family-friendly version.

You can also check out those unfamiliar words at NetLingo and at the Common Sense Media Digital Glossary.
