I is for IDEC
If you don’t know what IDEC means, you must not have kids! It’s been getting worse and worse as the school year goes on…the secret code of a kids language! Half the time I have no idea what the heck they’re talking about! Without Google, I’d be lost! I find myself resorting to sneaking online and trying to decode what they have either said or typed so I know what they are saying and, if needed, how to respond!
I remember as a child hearing the word, “shorthand” and wondering what in the world that language was all about. I remember being lost trying to decipher what was scribbled on the piece of paper! I’m finding that I have that same questionable feeling when I read a text or a twitter post that my children make! I’m just so glad that Google exists now because I feel like I have a secret weapon against the abbreviated words I see!
Here are a couple sites that may help you decipher what your children are saying! I feel knowledge is power…it’s best to educate yourself so you can spot potential troubles before it gets out of hand!
Good luck & Happy De-Coding!
