Do find that there is a growing gap in communication between teens and adults? Do you know why? The reason is many fold. Email is now outdated for teens who continue to text, but adults don't know why. Then, their is cursive. Remember when you actually learned penmanship in school. Now, spelling and penmanship are unknown. Most kids don't even know about stamps. I still remember 4 cent stamps.
Kids today lack meaningful communication skills, and many have never written a letter. Maybe they should have a site on Gather for kids and teens to communicate in full written sentences. Let's suggest using a spell checker. Well, the spell checker would help a lot of adults that I know.
