Teen Slangs for Parents To Catch Up With Their Kids

What Is Slang and How Is It Created?

Slang, often used by teens and young adults, is a word or phrase that’s not generally considered standard or polite language. It’s usually used in place of common words or to refer to things that aren’t socially considered formal or appropriate to talk about. For example, “iykyk” is slang for “If you know, you know,” Or ” LMAO” is a gaming slang for referring to “laughing my ass off”.

Slang can be created in various ways – from using popular culture references to developing unique words that only exist in the slang culture. Teenagers use slags to sound cool and talk hideously without worrying about social conventions.

However, as a parent, you don’t need to worry about it because you can now easily install spyware software like mSpy that has “keyword alert” features for decoding slang. It will tell you if your teenager is not using the correct language or trying to hide what they are saying to their friends or detect that your kid stands up to bullies so you can react in time. Some Kids also create short terms to converse coolly in their friend circle.
