32 Internet Slang Terms Every Parent Should Know

Yes, we might roll our eyes at how teenagers rarely write full sentences -- or even words! -- anymore. But as parents, we still need to know what the heck that online slang -- and all those acronyms teens use on the Internet -- actually mean. Not all of it will make you LOL.

"Your teen might have you believe their phone is private like a diary, but it's really more like a distant rave party they can escape to," warns Carrie Krawiec, a licensed family therapist at Birmingham Maple Clinic in Troy, Michigan.

In fact, according to a new study that followed the sexting habits of 1,000 high school students over six years, sexting has pretty much become the new first base. And it's often going on right under your nose.

"Abbreviations are intended to obscure what your teen is saying," says Krawiec, "which is exactly why you need to figure it out." Here, the harmless, the racy, and the kind of ridiculous Internet slang every parent should know.

1. ASLP: A request for age, sex, location, and a picture

2. CD9: Code 9, meaning parents are around. (99 means the 'rents are gone.)

3. CID: Acid

4. CU46: See you for sex

5. DOC: Drug of choice

6. GNOC: Get naked on camera

7. GNRN: Get naked right now

8. GYPO: Get your pants off

9. IPN: I'm posting naked

10. IWSN: I want sex now

11. KOTL: Kiss on the lips

12. KPC: Keeping parents clueless

13. LHS: Let's have sex

14. LMIRL: Let's meet in real life

15. MoF: Male or female

17. Noob: Short for newbie, it's an insult

18.  NMU: Not much, you?

19. PAW: Parents are watching

20. PIR: Parents in room

21. 911: Parent emergency

22. PRON: Porn (Come on kids! We can do word scrambles, too.)

23. S2R: Send to receive, as in pictures

24. 53X: Sex

25. Sugarpic: Sexy picture

26. THOT: Slamming a girl, as in "That hoe over there"

27. TINA: Crystal meth

28. WTTP: Want to trade pics?

29. WYCM: Will you call me?

30. 1174: Party meet-up

31. 420: Marijuana

32. 8: Oral sex

Did you know all these slang terms?

I didn't know any of these but my son is not the age yet where he would be using these. I will be printing this out though.

Woah.  These were new to me. I can't think how they came up with the oral sex one. Or any of those with numbers-  1174? Party?

I already knew all those codes and taught them to my 12 year old so she knows to stay away from people who use them

I have never seen my daughters use any of these. They are 13 and 11, so we still have a while before we are safely throught the teen years. So far, so good.

Yes, I know these terms. Not because of my son though, he's only 6.
