28 Chat Acronyms Parents Absolutely Need to Know

Posted in: , ,

Everyone agrees that the work of a parent is never done, and whether parenting toddlers, or parenting teenagers, it's one day, one trouble. When I saw the title of this post trending, I assumed it was talking to out of touch parents about acronyms like LOL, SMDH, WTF, TBH or OMG. How wrong could I have been?

It shows that even I with all my social media waka have no idea about the kinds of things young children of nowadays talk about when they chat online using Internet slangs. Acronyms have reached a whole new level – and not in a nice way. In fact, parents should be disturbed, very very disturbed!

Writer and mother of two, Kelly Wallace, compiled these, she tells CNN, common acronyms teens use while exchanging online/text messages:

1. IWSN – I want sex now

2. GNOC – Get naked on camera

3. NIFOC – Naked in front of computer

4. PIR - Parent in room

5 CU46 - See you for sex

6. 53X - Sex

7. 9 - Parent watching

8. 99 - Parent gone

9. 1174 - Party meeting place

10. THOT - That hoe over there

11. CID – Acid (the drug)

12. Broken - Hungover from alcohol

13. 420 – Marijuana

14. POS - Parent over shoulder

15. SUGARPIC - Suggestive or erotic photo

16. KOTL - Kiss on the lips

17. (L)MIRL - Let’s meet in real life

18. PRON - Porn

19. TDTM – Talk dirty to me

20. 8 - Oral sex

21. CD9 - Parents around/Code 9

22. IPN – I’m posting naked

23. LH6 - Let’s have sex

24. WTTP – Want to trade pictures?

25. DOC - Drug of choice

26. TWD - Texting while driving

27. GYPO - Get your pants off

28. KPC- Keeping parents clueless

Am I the only one distressed by this revelation that young children seem to have only sex on their mind? Gosh, I hope there are other fun stuff they also think and chat about.
