I have to say, I don’t think we’ll truly know the answer to whether texting is harmful to grammar for a while yet. I’d say there is good reason to be concerned, but also reason for hope. JMHO. 🙂
Thanks to the good folks at onlinecollege.org for the infographic.
Earnest Parenting: help for parents of children who text.
I have to say that this is a great infographic. I truly believe that texting definitely impacts the grammatical ability that our children hold, and I think that this is only going to get worse as time goes on.
I’m not completely certain it will hurt, but I do agree there is a big risk. I’m hoping our kids learn to be good writers in spite of the texting. Time will tell….
