When Parents Text: So Much Said...So Little Understood Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of insanely funny texts between parents and kids, When Parents Text is a surprisingly affecting window into the complicated time when parents arent ready to let go, and kids arent ready to be let go. The parents are well-meaning but hopeless, silly and a little corny, and befuddled by the technology. The kids are bewildered yet patient: the perfect straight man. And the authors, two recent college graduates, Lauren Kaelin and Sophia Fraioli, have an unerring editorial instinct to select the funniest, sweetest, quirkiest, most-telling exchanges.

Theres the revelatory: Mom: My fingers are saying words. This is amazing.

The virtual scolding:
Dad: I will deal with your sassy behavior when I get home. Meanwhile have some fiber.

The autofill-challenged:
Mom: dig up some tadpoles on ur way homo. Me: ummm, what? Mom: It autocorrected me. I mean to say dig up some tadpoles on ur way homo. (4 minutes later) Mom: PICK UP SOME TAMPONS ON YOUR WAY HOME.

The manically inappropriate:
Mom: Woo Hoo—Ruth died, you know Uncle Lymans wife, BUT I have your Braves tickets and check on the table!!

And the downright inexplicable:
Dad: You could poop your pants in the yankee candle store and no one would know.

Launched as a website just last year, www.whenparentstext.com is a phenomenon. It receives 300,000 to 500,000 page views a day, with features in The Huffington Post, Entertainment Weekly, College Humor, and more. When Parents Text includes the best of texts from the website, plus more than 50 percent all-new material never before published.

Includes an emoticon glossary and 16-page color insert of MMS texts— multimedia messaging service, aka, bizarre photos from mom and dad. Its the perfect gift for every text-savvy kid to give to his or her parents.
