I have a problem that I believe is becoming increasingly common amongst my fellow teenagers. I have a trendy parent! There I said it, and the first step to any recovery is admitting the problem. Now I’m serious about the severity of this problem. My 50-year-old father sends me text messages all the time, and they are all written exactly the way teens my own age would write. Oh yes, my father knows what ROTFLMAO means and all the other text lingo. He also has a Facebook where he keeps in touch with all his friends and checks constantly for updates. I’m afraid to ask him if he Tweets because I don’t think I could handle the truth. The worst part of it all is that I thought this was completely normal behavior for a dad until my friends told me different. I innocently asked them, “Doesn’t everyone’s dad have a Facebook?” Well, it turns out NO; I’m the only freak with that problem. Is anyone else faced with this problem or had a similar rude awakening?   – Ruben
