How to Identify if your child is using the WB slang word

You might learn your child is using this slang term by chance when a text pops up on the phone screen. But while the slang term WB is harmless, other teenage slang terms could indicate that your teen is talking about risky behaviors or communicating with potentially dangerous people.

Having a parental control app on your child’s phone will give you peace of mind by alerting you to your child’s exposure to risks encountered on their phone. With a parental control app installed on your child’s phone, you have the control to set alerts to help your teen avoid the pitfalls of predators, drug dealers, and other negative influences.

How to talk with your child about use of the WB slang word

Even though online games might not be in the same geographical location, the players form groups that are as tightly knit as any sports team or club.

Here are some ideas for talking with your teenager about online interactions:

  • Are the people you play with all in our country or is it an international group?
  • If the other players are jerks, do you just disconnect or do you try to redirect them?
  • Have you ever met any of these players in person after having met them on a game?
