Secret text codes used by teens and what they mean

     The first time I realized my kids were texting (to say things to each other I wouldn't hear) happened about 11 years ago on the way to the shore. My kids and their friends were giggling in the back of my minivan every time I said something. At the time I thought it was a little rude but I didn't complain. Kids will be kids and we were on vacation. It took me a while to start to text myself but now I see the benefits. Texting is a way to communicate that's short, to the point and private.  I never saw the need to check my kids phones either, but I know some parents do with good reason.

     So here are some of the latest sneaky text codes kids are using and what they mean.  These are from "Bark" the online teen safety program analyzes 10 million texts a month.

1. 53X-sex

2. CD9-parents around

3. GNOC-get naked on camera

4. WTTP-want to trade photos

5. LMIRL-let's meet in real life

6. LH6-let's have sex

7. PAL-parents are listening

8. TWD-texting while driving

We've come a long way from LOL and BRB
