About This Quote


Source: "Texting That Saves Lives." TED2012. Feb. 2012. Conference Presentation. Additional Information: This quote by Nancy Lubin is from the activist's 2012 TED Talk. The Talk is about her social advocacy organization which helps teens in crisis via text. In this quote, Lubin is explaining that parents know that texting is the best way to communicate with older kids, more so than trying to reach them via phone call, email, etc. The reason for this, explains Lubin, is that texts have a 100 percent open rate. Kids also feel more comfortable communicating difficult emotions via text as opposed to talking about them. Watch the full TED Talk here: Nancy Lublin - Texting That Saves Lives
