    No, that is different.

    Youth culture -- true youth culture, not the stuff excitedly yammered about on local news -- is always an escape from the squares, and the squares are anybody north of about 17. So there is a penumbra of a few years when young adults still have some contact with it, but it is mercurial and secret, by definition.

    It only crops up in a few subgroups, the rest are just swept along with looky-lou syndrome, if they are conscious at all. And it evaporates as soon as kids start to acquire some modicum of control, as it isn't needed anymore. But it's like a baby language, and it's always different and intimate. It's a stage of life -- a reflection that the stupidity and irresponsibility, and irrelevance, of adults dawns on a few kids a few years before they themselves become adults, and leaves them wildly alienated. It would completely defeat the purpose if The Olds (almost everyone over 21) could comprehend it.

      I don’t need to understand cultures and subcultures to decode basic emojis. And neither should any parents who have spent their whole lives using this stuff.

        That's like saying you know letters so you can understand all languages.

        Parents don't know what their kids are thinking because they never have and never will. It's fine. We have always muddled through.

          I get it, I’m old and lame. I’m well aware of that fact. But I don’t need a ****ing decoder to figure out that if my kid is texting pill emojis and the letter P or A or X that they might be talking about drugs, this is pretty simple stuff and anyone at parenting age should easily understand that.

            Maybe I don't spend enough time on *those* Reddit pages, but I've only seen weed mentioned as "trees," and the evergreen emoji. Maybe the smoke icon as well. None of the other ****.

              Raised 3 bright and very independent daughters. Clueless much of the time. Brutal and wonderful, both.

                jfc who reads their kids texts?

                I've never seen one and never felt the need to check. It's as though parents never knew how to speculate their kids were '****ing around' in more ways than one before 1990.

                  Helicoptering comes and goes. It was very strong in the late Victorian era, and it's very strong now.

                      Does the person who wrote this article, and their editor, and everyone interviewed in it, not know what heroin, oxy, hydrocodone, morphine, codeine, fentanyl, and meth are made of?
