Most parents check their children’s phones, read text messages, WhatsApp messages, Facebook messages and posts.
But how much of it do we truly understand?
The police have revealed a list of secret texting codes that referred to drugs, sex and suicide.
We urge all parents to familiarise yourself with these codes as to better understand what your children may really be talking about.
These codes have also been used by pedophiles when attempting to groom teenagers and children into sexual relationships and activities.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Newry and Mourne division published an extensive list of the codes earlier this year.
Please share this far and wide to warn other parents so our children aren’t at risk.
