Earlier this year, Samsung Mobile conducted a survey focused on family texting habits. The results of the survey claim that text messaging is improving relationships between parents and teens. Not only that, parents are learning something from their teens as a result of use of text messaging to keep in touch with one another. As a wired parent, I regularly use text messaging to quickly stay in touch and keep communication lines open with my text messaging guru teens… do you? One of the biggest challenges we face as parents of teens is communicating with them. We want to be involved in their lives, be good listeners, and help with the many challenges that crop up in the middle and high school years. We want to do all of this while allowing our kids to grow and learn on their own without watching their every move.
