Parents to become texperts

Parents are being encouraged to learn simple text messages like "r u goin 2 b l8?" to help keep their children safe. Dyfed Powys Police is renewing the "Teach ur mum 2 txt" campaign call for parents to take advantage of the security benefits that mobile phones can offer. It aims to make parents more text-savvy to aid better communication with their children. The idea is that rather than embarrassing youngsters by phoning them to check where they are, parents can use the more discreet method of texting. Texting is a language children and teenagers have been using for years but lots of parents might still have difficulty in understanding. It is discrete and cheaper than making a call ;)
