Focus on the Family put together back-to-school packets for kids and parents (PDF). Notwithstanding the references to prayer, they’re actually pretty commendable — If they focused on things like this instead of stopping gay couples from experiencing the same kind of joy, maybe everyone wouldn’t despise them as much.
Anyway, they give parents a brief “cheat sheet” so they know about abbreviations they might see in their kids’ text messages or online chats… and this one caught me off-guard:
Yes… *that’s* what the kids say. OMG, that’s hilarious! I’m GMBO!
Here’s what I don’t get. The group is trying to help parents. I know they want to shelter the children from sex and science and swears… but if you’re trying to let parents in on the secrets of what their kids are saying, why not just write LMAO?
