    Default LEARN TO TEXT IN YOUR KIDS LANGUAGE

    I honestly recommend against doing abbreviated "chat" or "net"

    speak. Kids are already changing spellings all over the place, and

    english teachers have such a hard time breaking kids of the habit.



    Using it with them reinforces the habit, when children need to be

    taught that there is a real spelling for everything

    My niece and nephews all text and none of them use abbreviations.

    With the "predictive text" it's become more common to just spell

    things out and most phones come with "quick notes" which have all

    these things already typed out. I'm a texter because it's so much

    easier when you have a toddler to send a quick text message to someone

    instead of calling them and being on the phone for at least 5 minutes

    just to say a quick word. I agree with herberkids3 that kids need to

    spell things correctly, but a teen should be able distinguish when

    it's appropriate to use abbreviations and when it's not.
