My 14 year old daughter texts excessively. Seems she is always texting someone. Here is my delima...she is getting all A's in school, doesn't miss homework assignments and runs XC in high school and does very well at that.
I really want to teach her to use verbal conversation more than texting...Any suggestions. I wish I could limit the # of texts by phone, but we are on a family plan and have unlimited because there are 4 of us in the family. Texting is also a vital way for me to get ahold of her from practices, etc.
I've recently talked to her about the fact that she texts others when she has friends over and how it's not polite...but she doesn't see it as a problem, because she says everyone does it. Am I too picky? I do know I am blessed by her in so many other ways.
