+1 IMHO the root of this problem is these girls don't really have a hergesh for yiddishkite its become subject where you study for tests and not so much think about emunah and bitachon
Earlier in this thread, meshugener rated a comment tops of thread. I rate this comment tops of the thread. The schools are so busy making the girls educated, how about some emunah and bitachon.

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.
Meh, there are 15 or so young Chabad couples that live around me in CLE and I'd be utterly shocked to find this happening among them.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

If they we're getting it from home it wouldn't be so bad. The problem is its not coming from any direction.

And it might not be. But it is happening at whatever percentage big or small.

again every community is different. Like I said before in Chabad if someone is trying they will go further than just that. Hence it'd be more apparent.

And of course there's a huge difference between married and singles.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Since this thread started, I've davened shacharis and mincha, let me tell you i davened much harder than normal, that my children's emunah should be strong. What started as a petty argument, is actualy turning into something constructive.

It always surprises me when I hear specific stories like that. I can't believe that goes on esp in the yeshivish small town cities.

'Shock' would not come close to describing how I felt the first person I saw reading my BBM msg on Shabbos. I didn't believe it until the 3rd shabbos it happened.

Also, I would assume its more prevalent amongst less than typical, whole, functioning families.

While the power of prayer is strong, actual steps need to be taken to establish strong emunah in our youth. I don't remember seeing much focus on that im my days in school, and i have a feeling not much has changed

I wonder if that's what it Is. Emunah. That keeps most kids from not texting. I'm not sure thats it exactly. Though obviously if you have emunah you won't hopefully be texting on shabbos.
