I thought I texted too much with my measly 20 texts a month, but, wow, has the average teen put texting to a new level. A study by Nielsen found that the average teenager sends 3,3339 texts per month, with teen girls topping 4,000 a month…
It reminds me of a cell phone bill from one of our adopted kids who is in his early 20′s. He would spend about 3000 minutes on the phone and send 3000 text messages. I calculated he was spending somewhere around 100 hours a month or more glued to his phone. It certainly does make you wonder what kind of generation these kids will turn into given they don’t communicate verbally and seem unable to concentrate on tasks…
