does your high schooler text you during the day?

my 11th grader texts me all the time.  he'll even take pics of kids we've talked about, so i can put a face to the stories he's told me.  he texts jokes and silly stories and random weirdness.  my friend said that it's abnormal for a kid his age to do that....so, are we weird?  please tell me that someone else has kids that do this????

**edit** typically, he's texting between classes and during his lunch time.  a couple of times, i have received texts during a class -- but not very often.

The kids aren't supposed to have their phones on during the school day, school rule. Of course most of them do, but mine wouldn't make that obvious to me by texting me from school, lol.

My best friend's high schooler does it. If I had been able to, I would have done so with my mother too. I think it's cool you guys are that close.

Your kid should NOT be texting while at school, period.  The fact that he's texting you is a little weird.  I have a 9th grader who doesn't even take his phone to school because he forgets it or forgets to charge it.  He has never, not once, sent me a text.

I don't have HS kids, but 2 in middle with phones. And no, they don't text me during the day. It's not allowed in school.

his school is really lenient on their phone policies.  he says most of his teachers receive/send texts througout the day.

yesterday, he was telling me about this kid who is super angry all the time...the kid threatens to beat up teachers and guidance counselors.  today, ds took a pic of him and sent it to me so i could see the angry face.  he does stuff like that all the time.

only if she needs something or to ask a quick question about something.... MOST schools have a rule against phones being used unless its during break periods or for emergencies
