Why Katie Couric wants us to know about digital language

Just ask your son or daughter, your grandson or granddaughter, if a digital language is really all that important. My guess is they will say without hesitation, “Well YEA! T2UL.”

Katie Couric recently dedicated her show to this topic and much, much more. It triggered within me the need to share this information and to ask the question, “Do you know where your kids are right now?” Not having proper insight into what the young generation is talking about can be frustrating and unhealthy for you and for them. Our youngsters are speaking a language that takes them to another sphere. And our awareness and knowledge of this new digital language can offer clues into their lives, so we must take time to learn what they already know. This matter is of such enormous and grave importance to parental peace of mind that I am listing here some of the most common, “G” rated acronyms. You can use these yourself while putting you on a road to knowing more about where your children are going, who they are talking to and what they are actually saying. Don’t be surprised if you hear Sam say, “LOL” instead of “That’s pretty funny,” to his friends that he is shooting baskets with. “Chat acronyms” are not staying in texting or email. They are becoming verbal to our teenagers.

The  Netlingo website gives you more text shorthand or chat acronyms than you may have ever cared to know about. I urge you to bookmark this page or another of your liking so you have an instant resource. Whether we like it or not, the digital age is here to stay and awareness is one of the most mentally healthful places for us as parents and grandparents to be if we are going to do our best work guiding our young people to adulthood in a healthy and safe way.
