New Chat Lingo Parents Should Know

A few years ago we did a post on online acronyms – well the world has changed quite a bit since fall of 2008 and us parents have a whole new language we need to get  "hip" too, and keep up with, as kids change faster than we can spit these days.   So here is your Back to School 2011 Chat Lingo – to english dictionary – you might be disgusted, offended, or humbled either way you NEED to know and we all need to learn how to write an actual letter with hand written spelled out words before our entire dictionary becomes an acronym.

So get out your reading glasses and saddle up – we now have over 500 acronyms to try to make sense of!  HTH!  If you would prefer more info in a downloadable pdf then here is your  Free Report for Parents – _Chat Lingo Guide
