  • Mine text all the time, we even text each other when we are in the house. It doesn't bother me because with the phone I know I can get hold of them anytime, they are 17 and 15

  • My girls both have cells and text pretty much. But it is nice to get to them when I need to. It doesn't become a problem until school and if they are up too late. But it is getting better. It is worse when a new boy comes around and then it seems like it is constant.

  • My youngest is 18 and he's a text addict, LOL It's not uncommon for him to average 500-600 a week. He pays his own bill and has for 2 years so it's not an issue.
