You may have thought that the language you speak at home would be all you'd need to communicate with your child. If only that were true...there's a whole other language that isn't entirely intuitive. To make it easier for you, below is a tool to help clarify the confusion. (Warning: to be a useful tool, we believe it needs to be authentic...which means that some terms may be offensive. As such, please be careful not to share this section with your child.)
BTW (yes, "by the way"), if you identify either an Instant Message phrase or a Tween Dictionary word, phrase or expression that isn't included, please share it with us below!
