"Have a great day!"
"I'm praying for you today."
"How did your test go?"
"Hey, Mom, can I borrow the car on Thursday?"
These are just a few of the texts that have passed between my kids and me in recent days. And to think, just a couple of years ago I didn't even know how to send a text!
I've come a long way, baby.
I’m kind of funny about cell phones. I’ve seen some pretty poor choices among junior high girls regarding cell phones, so we don’t let our kids have a phone until high school. (But that’s another post for another time.)
But once my girls have cell phones, I find that one of the best ways to connect with them is through texting. Just a simple text that says, “I love you” or “I’m praying for you today” really lets my kids know they're important to me. It's kind of like slipping them a little love note . . . electronically.
Texting isn’t your thing? I can promise you it’s the way your kids will be--or already are--communicating, so give it a try, figure it out (it’s not that hard), and get in touch with your kids.
Connecting with your kids through texting is great because it’s a quick hello, a reminder that you are thinking about them, and it’s meeting them where they are in a techno-savvy world.
Go ahead—send an encouraging text to your kids today!
