Positive Text Message Ideas from Dads to Teens

With the emergence of technology in the present time, communication between people has become easier and faster. With the use of cell phones, we are able to reach out to other people to ask about them or let them know what we’re up to through text messages and calls. Today, people of all ages are into sending text messages, most specially teenagers.

However, we hear so many negative things about texting and others say it can affect developing relationships. Though some of those can be true, you can still use texting for good by sending your teenage children positive messages.

Dads usually leave the house early and spend most of their time at work while the teenage children are in school. Since you don’t have much time to spend with one another, sending your teens some inspiring and motivational text messages can help them get through a stressful day at school.
