Big Jim and I ran across a story this morning and got us thinking here it is:A guy just posted a page from his high school yearbook online . . . and in a sign of the times, it features students with the best TATTOOS. It's bad enough that this many kids at one high school have tattoos, but the tattoos themselves are terrible.
If you have a teen at home you probably know parents and teens speak 2 different languages. I have a 16 year old son at home so Big Jim thought he would test my text acronym knowledge....I didn't do so well
Big Jim thinks that the whole situation with his Sheri using of teenage "slang" terms is ridiculous. I, on the other hand, think that keeping up with the times is OK. Using the terms "filthy" and "dank" and "sick" is cool -- if you can do it right. Keeping up with modern lingo is important. My mom was always stealing clothes from my closet to stay current.
My significant other keeps talking like her teenagers. She's 40! It drives me crazy! She thinks she's being a "cool mom" and staying up with the times saying things are SICK, DANK and FILTHY. But the proof that she knows it's weird is the fact that she won't say those words in front of her friends!
Health experts have been buzzing this week after a new study seemed to show a dramatic rise in the number of teenagers who have diabetes or are at risk for developing it. But are the research findings really cause for alarm?
Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter may have eroded levels of privacy by giving people a place to post every facet of their lives and the people around them. However, it’s also given parents a way of doing some sneaky snooping into their children’s lives.
