Can you read your children's text messages? If you have trouble deciphering them, you're probably not alone. Many parents complain that they cannot understand the arcane jargon of SMS.The NY Times reports that America's largest cellular carrier, Cingular Wireless, is trying to solve this issue with a series of nationwide "texting bees" designed to give parents a crash course on the basics of texting.
