How to talk to teenagers?
#2 Brushing Up On Slang
If you don’t know that memes are, or what any acronyms mean, like “TIL” (today I learned), or “TBH” (to be honest), then you need to brush up on teen talk. Everything from abbreviations to the trendy words. Even if you don’t use them on a daily basis (please, don’t), this allows you to keep up with what they’re talking about in person and online.
More so, it’s nice for them to hear you drop a word, use it correctly, and naturally! Don’t overdo it, just one or two words you happen to like, but don’t overuse them. Instead, think of it as you gently reminding them that you have some spunk, and that you’re amazing. Duh!
