Net Language - Parents, Beware

If you are no tech-y, continue reading. NOT!

You've been warned!

Some of us may be groping with some stuffs in the net, and in the SMS our kids receive after checking their inbox, and some of us may be the ones bothered by these seeming inability of us to understand what they mean.

Beware parents, these words, or group of letters may be harsh and incomprehensible but these are the kind that will save you from a miscommunication/misunderstanding with your kids. If you want to better understand them, we need to know their language, so here goes a few...

I really don’t understand the need for shortcuts. I don’t use them and sometimes in chatting with people I’d be the silly one asking what’s IMO? Hahahaha.
