It's no secret that kids have their own special language and they always have. Each generation of kids develops its own slang, and parents have always been in the dark to what it all really means
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
Teen Chat Decoder.Com – Computer savvy teens using “acronyms” to juggle multiple instant messages & chat sessions, while circumventing parental control in order to keep on-line their conversations private.
“It's no secret that kids have their own special language and they always have. Each generation of kids develops its own slang, and parents have always been in the dark to what it all really means,” says, Don Schnure, President of Parental Control Products, LLC, makers of Teen Chat Decoder.
It is really no different today. Teenagers still have their own special way of communicating with each other, and the Internet makes it even easier then ever. And by using acronyms (a new word formed by joining the initial letters of a series of words) teens chat using an online 'short hand' that leaves parents baffled.
Using Internet text messaging software like Instant Messenger, chatrooms like MySpace.com and text to text cell phone messaging, parents can get hopelessly lost in all the lingo. Not even the use of internet monitoring software can help parents, if they don't know what is being said on-line.
“Parents don’t have a clue as to what their children are saying on-line, or more importantly, what’s being said to them,” continues Don Schnure. “It’s truly frightening what kind of information kids are giving away on-line, and to whom!”
Parents probably remember back in the 1980's when "Awesome!" meant, "Cool", and "Bad" meant, "Good." However, they are shocked to find out what current slang terms like: "MIRL" (Let's Meet In Real Life), "PLOS" (Parents looking over shoulder) or "AITR" (Adult in the room) really mean.
There are a thousand more acronyms kids use with meanings that are drug and sex related.
To help parents “stay in the loop,” Teen Chat Decoder.Com today released a free web site that makes it easy for parents to quickly ‘decode’ the online slang their teen’s use while chatting online.
To use the web site, users simple type in the acronym they want to decode into the and the web site instantly deciphers and displays the acronyms true meaning -- some times there are several.
“To ensure that as many parents as possible will use the free web site, it’s been certified free of all spyware, adware, malware, pop ups and viruses by softpedia.com.
