Some things in life just bother me……….lack of adequate health care in the US, poverty in what is touted as being the richest nation, and today…………the appearance of spelling ignorance in the teen culture of today.
I know this is a distant problem as compared to the first two, but seriously does it bother everyone my age or generation? I text minimally to my kids mostly, and yet I can’t write U for you, it grates on me to even see it. I have a few teen “friends” on facebook and when I see their status updates and they include the most horrendous spelling and phonetic or easy forms to write it causes me to question how they turn that mode off and on.
Writing is now part of the SAT test, writing is critical in college, writing is something I once considered as a career path……….so to see it done so carelessly makes me want to question these teens. Do you know how to write better………is this habit a hindrance to your better writing? My own girls put more thought into any text they send me, maybe because they would just rather not discuss it with me again….ha ha!
This is just something that was on my mind.
I did ask Adrienne about the party she was invited to, she informed me she was not invited to the party, and has no interest in going, so that is easy enough. Over the weekend the mom posted that she has 10+ chaperons for the party. It’s being held at a local social hall, not a huge place, and I imagine the number attending is under 50, but I thought that many adults chaperoning was a bit excessive, maybe I’m ignorant………..who knows!
