Kids wrote the rule book on texting. Now parents are trying to learn the rules. And the results, as old fingers meet tiny keypads, are priceless. Hilariously hapless messages. Bad jokes. Crazy emoticons. Autofill disasters. And what's up with the ALL CAPS and forty exclamation points? But underneath the humour is a surprisingly sweet and affecting glimpse of that time when parents aren't ready to let go. When Parents Text will make you LOL with LOL (lots of love).
