When you talk to your kid, it may sometimes seem like they’re speaking another language – one full of slang words and phrases you’ve never heard of. In this age of texting and emoji, you may even feel that your kid is talking a different language all together. When your kid’s using words like “IDK, TTYL, J , and YOLO”, chances are you miss out on what your kid’s trying to tell you. When “sick” means feeling ill to you, but it means “really good” to your kid, you know theirs is a language barrier. Does your child analyze what words he/she uses? How does he/she talk to different people?

Dealing with lying is frustrating and confusing for many parents. Unfortunately, teens and pre-teens often lie or tell only part of the truth.
