Slangs are a natural development of any speaking language. They might be words, abbreviations, or sentences. We (the elders) know some of them, such as ASAP and OMG! But you will be surprised by newer ones! Can you imagine the meaning of IYKYK? WYA? CAKE?! There is much to learn!
What is That?
Bet slang is an example. Can you imagine it means “Affirmative” or “Ok, confirmed”? The problem with modern slang is that they are not simple abbreviations or related words as we used to do in the past. Teens developed it to be secret because they don’t want parents or supervisors to understand.
There are a number of dangerous slang words that every parent should be concerned about, so in some cases, it would be necessary to create a list of keywords to block for parental control to be aware of the use of these words by your teenager. We can classify them into three main categories:
Abbreviations are the traditional form of slang we (the elders) can figure out if we think a little about it. Ex: HYD (how are you doing), OMG (oh my god), OMW (on my way), etc.
Complex slang is a little more challenging, as it is a mix between two words(can be partial). Something like: Netflix and chill! Another example is No cap!
It is slang in the most complicated form. You see a word you may know but don’t understand its meaning!
