It is geferlach whenever/wherever/whoever. It is a pritzas geder, a chink in the armor. If someones does text on Shabbos Chv"Sh, they are also letting others know, the recipients, and it a major chillul Hashem, pirsum hachet, it makes a chabura b'aveira. Busha ???

As was mentioned, it is IMHO2 a symptom, not the problem, which would be a lack of strong yiddish values.

It should be easy to check up your kids cell,  ???

Unfortunately, this is a problem that crosses communities, types of Yiddin and countries.  It is not only the girls who are doing the texting.  And texting is just the tip of the iceberg.

It's a whole different discussion of why are teenagers today disillusioned with Yiddishkeit and falling off the "D" at an alarming rate.

And what can we do to help this situation?  How do we inspire today's teens?

I think in Chabad guys would do this with more conviction. If they are going to text on shabbos they will also break shabbos any other way. Albeit they may do it in private so not to be picked on by hanhala. Teens going off truly is a problem across all communities.

I rate this post at the top of this entire thread.
Guys, have you been lately in a yeshiva or school as a teen? Anyone here? I believe the answer is (based on the discussion here) no.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

I'm very in touch with Chabad high schools. Can't speak for anyone else though.

I'm mostly knowledgeable about Bais Yaakov high schools.

I agree that we don't know. We're not in touch like someone IN high school. Things tend to be worse than I think and I am constantly finding out things that surprise me even though in a certain sense nothing does anymore.

Scary, can't say that I've ever seen or even heard of anything like that around me but I guess I live in a bubble?

It could be the percentage is small. But it IS happening.

Without being in a different time zone it's very hard to tell, as they know not to text to you. How exactly they establish who is in the "shabbos" list, I don't know.

I haven't. A lot of Chabad teens/early 20's that go off adjust very easily because they grew up in a very open environment. Footsteps "helps" Polish chasidim much more to my knowledge.

Eta- I could tell you one thing for sure lubavitch girls don't need any lessons on how to dress. ;)
