We all know that kids love texting, with repercussions good and bad. And many of us have heard stories of kids who text literally thousands of text messages per month. After all, the average number of monthly texts for a 13- to 17-year-old teen is 1,742, according to a recent Nielsen study.
But 14,528 text messages in one month?
California dad Greg Hardesty almost fell out of his chair when he discovered his AT&T statement was 440 pages long (thank goodness it was an online statement). His daughter Reina had texted 14,528 text messages that month.
Grab your calculator….
-That’s 484 texts a day.
-That’s 34 texts every waking hour.
-That’s more than one text message every two minutes that Reina is awake!
This girl’s cereal definitely gets soggy every morning.
