Texting is not communicating. To me texting is just the transfer of information, but verbally communicating with someone is real communication. When you want to communicate with someone make sure you use words, sit down and have a face-to-face conversation because otherwise texting and sometimes even emails lose the message behind the meaning and the message can get lost. So make sure that you talk and use words. And that you don't just use texting to communicate. After all communicating and over communicating is the best way to have any relationship and it models the way for others.
