The website When Parents Text have a couple of perfect taglines – “small keypad – old hands,” and “so much said…so little understood.” So true, so true.
When Parents Text’s collection of user submitted messages from mothers and fathers to their sons and daughters are totally and completely hilarious. Like laugh out loud, eyes watering, peeing in your pants funny. So funny that their collection is going offline and is being put into book form which will be released on September 1st.
Check out twenty of their most hilarious submissions right here!
