Learn Her Language
So you’d like to talk to your daughter about growing up but don’t know where to start. Consider this. Send her a text like, “I’m not 2BZ4U” (I’m not too busy for you) or “What I want to tell you is 2G2BT” (too good to be true). No, we don’t mean you must learn every chat acronym out there, though becoming at least semi-fluent in t-e-x-t won’t hurt. We do mean that it helps to speak her language rather than expect her to become versed in yours.
