Most of our parents who text are doing their very best to fit in and communicate in a digital world that is foreign to them.
What comes naturally to you and I can almost seem like a second language to them and it’s unclear whether the biggest hurdle they face is Autocorrect, unfortunate typos, being unable to read on a small screen or just a general lack of digital skills.
If only they had someone who was kind and patient to teach them. Someone who they were related to and could help guide them through the process of texting instead of being surrounded by lazy opportunists who cunningly screenshots their messages each time they send something awkward or embarrassing.
But then again, if they didn’t, we wouldn’t have this wonderful gallery to show you.
