Anyone else out there doing this – parenting by text? I have two boys (18 & 20) away at college – I find the need to send little messages – after all I want to be a good parent – they need reminding right? This last weekend I felt the need to remind everyone to be safe – it’s 10:00 pm – I don have to wait up for anyone – so I’ll send little reminders. Below is one our latest exchanges:
(Me) Remember how I raised you – be safe. Make good choices.
(My kid) Mom I don’t want to hurt your feelings but I’m not five years old – I’ve got this – please leave me alone.
(My kid) Mom you could respond?
(Me) You told me you got this – I’m leaving you alone.
Isn’t technology grand!
