But I have rules about texting..... one- no texting at the dinner table.....two- no texting when we have family time or family talks...three.- no texting after nine pm... four- no dirty pics or texting...

  • I personally don't have a teen, but I recently was one, haha. I constantly texted (still do text pretty often) and so did all my friends!

    Hope you have a cell phone plan with an unlimited amount of texts!

  • Both of my daughters text all the time and I text too. My 14 year old texts the most out of all of us then my 22 year old then me. Usually I only text my kids so I really don't text a lot. I do have rules about it texting though. No texting at dinner and no sexting. Other than that, I'm pretty laid back about it. But my 14 year old knows I can/will check her phone randomly to make sure she is not sexting.

  • We all text but there are limits - no texting at meal times, no texting til homework is done, no cell phones or computers in bedrooms at bedtime.
