You may think you're one of the parents who has monitoring their teen's high tech conversations pretty well covered. More than 84 percent say they do.
But teens are finding ways around your watchful eyes with new apps that let them text and share photos without you ever knowing. And they've created new codes for the texts you can see, codes you need to know. Your child's safety could depend upon it.
We asked moms and their teenagers to take our technology test. We asked about new apps that allow kids to call, text and send pictures for free, as well as the latest "teen lingo."
Parents didn't score too.
Carol Coleman was surprised to learn "LMIRL" means "Let's Meet In Real Life".
Michelle Burgess successfully guessed what "GYPO" means. "Get Your Pants Off?" she asked.
We worked with SmartParents, a service that allows parents to monitor their children online, to show you what your teens could be saying on their high tech devices.
"There's been kind of an arms race between parents and technology," explains Gerry Polucci, the CEO and Founder of SmartParents. "And parents are losing."
You may think you're on top of it, watching what your kids text using the plans you pay for, but did you know there are new apps out there that allow teens to call and text for free? They don't even need a data plan.
"It's scary in a way, just not knowing," mom Carol Coleman admitted.
And there are apps that allow people to "text" pictures, which disappear from the receiver's phone in seconds.
Hailey says though she's never sent a revealing picture, it does happen. "I'm not going to deny that pictures that are really risqué go through that too," she said.
