Our daughter is going into 6th grade this year and it seems she just started texting last month. Six months ago she rarely talked on the phone and now our home phone rings all day long. Today, she ran the battery down on our cordless phone and it died in the middle of my wife's phone call to her sister. My brother inlaw warned me about texting cell phone charges, so I was happy to get a new Teen-friendly plan from Virgin Mobile wireless- $25/mo for 300 minutes + unlimited texts and unlimited Internet. I have to admit, I am a little jealous of this texting, as I know I would have loved to do that when I was young- but then Moshe is so old, that he remembers going to a one room school house and getting all excited about our new black and white TV set.
I just hope this texting doesn't get out of hand. -Advice anyone?
