View Full Version : Texting friend needed for 7 yo son

I know that there have been pen-pal requests on here so I thought I would see if anyone is interested in a text buddy.
The majority of people who I thought were my friends have really judged me harshly for giving my son a phone. They don't understand that he isn't allowed to talk on the phone. He is only allowed to text on it with auto correct turned off. He and I use this as a fun way to communicate. It's a quick way to see his use of grammar and spelling. So...if anyone else has a child that is allowed to text, I know my son would be thrilled to text them back. He is 7 and we are in Florida.

I think that's pretty cool! I've thought about asking people to do something similar, but on twitter :)

Sounds like a cool idea. My daughter is 11 and has selective mutism. She often texts me things she doesn't feel comfortable saying in person. It has really opened our line of communication.
