You Need To Know!

Text / SMS Speak

Children and young people do not always make the best decisions!  They don’t have enough life experiences to understand the right thing choices to make and can make mistakes.

They sometimes make friends over the internet with the wrong people. They sometimes give out too much information and even make the mistake of meeting people they meet on line in real life.  Of course, these may be people who are pretending to be another young person when they are in fact much older and not very nice!

Because children and young people want to keep some of these conversations private, they use acronyms only they know and understand.

For example – POS is an acronym for Parent Over Shoulder!
