      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.
