Moms with Teens Moms with Teens

 Do your kids text you from with in the house to ask you a question instead of walking downstairs or outside to ask you.  My daughter does it all the time and it drives me crazy...

Quoting PhillyinFrance:

I agree with PP.  I'm pretty tolerant of texting, but I have my limits and I wouldn't do anything she asks by text while she is at home and can otherwise ask you!    That sounds like a pretty easy problem to solve - if you allow it, then don't complain.


Oh I don't answer her she will come out and say did you get my text and i say ya but you have legs so come out here and ask me.  The only thing I will respond to is when she will ask from the bathroom for toliet paper to me thats a legit text.

TEXTING....UNTIL I LOST COMMUNICATION WITH MY SON, BECAUSE I RATHER TALK OR DO FACE TO FACE, AND UNTIL RECENTLY GETTING OUR COMMUNICATION BACK, I HAVE LEARNED TO LOVE TEXTING.   ONE THING THAT GETS TO HIM IS THAT I TEXT LOTS OF QUESTIONS, AND OR PUT IN LOTS OF ADDED DETAILS, AND WHAT ENDS UP HAPPENING HE CALLS OR SHOWS UP, I GUESS CAUSE IT'S NOT A BIG DEAL TO ME ANY LONGER.   MAYBE MOM, JUST CHILL,  SHE MAY BE DOING IT JUST TO GET YOUR EDGE OUT OF SHAPE.   GIVE HER A DOSE OF HER OWN MEDICINE AND SEE JUST WHAT MAY HAPPEN?  THINK OF THIS ....NO MORE WHINNING.   WOW WHAT A CONCEPT?  BUT GO AHEAD AND TEXT WHINNING HER, MAKE IT A GAME...WITH YOU IN THE CONTROL SEAT.  HAVE FUN, CAUSE SOMEDAY THEY JUST GROW UP AND LEAVE HOME, NO CALLS, ETC....TEXT YOU CAN SAVE AND KEEP FOREVER.   JUST A THOUGHT!!!!

ugh, I'm in the same boat.  I swear my son has very selective or is incredibly deaf from the rock band he plays.  He tries texting me from his room but I make him come to me to get an answer.
