A friend gave her 13-year-old daughter a cell phone for Christmas. They wisely chose the unlimited plan for texting. In about three hours on Christmas morning, her daughter had 70 texts.
She reports that between Dec. 25 to Dec. 28, her daughter had sent and received more than 400 texts!
I asked what on Earth could they have to talk about that much? She said it’s like this:
“Guess what?” (1 text)
“What?” (2 texts)
“I’m wearing a blue shirt.” (3 texts) and they add up fast like that!
I was amazed at her statistics and wondered what the record could possibly be?
How many texts can your kid rack up and how quickly? What’s their record? What’s the most your phone bill has ever been?
Do you care how much they are texting as long as it’s not costing you extra money and they’re not doing it during dinner, church, or school?
