Parents Just Don’t Understand, Tech Edition

Mom sends a group text… to all four of her boyfriends. Another listener's mom sends the crying-laughing emoji - after their neighbor died. Stories of insensitive parents, tech-addicted kids, and the deep meanings of punctuation.

And there's one communication fail we all share, young and old. We cop out of tough conversations with a text. Yes, it's transparent, and yes, we all do it. Guys, we're better than this. 

This week, we fix intergenerational communication forever. Kidding! But we do have answers. Thanks to an expert - family therapist Dr. Gail Saltz. She’s here to help.
