I Messages or iMessages

While writing another blog post (coming soon), I was reminded of one of those moments that make you feel really old. Recently, I gave a presentation to my son’s 5th grade class about self-esteem and worry. I suggested the students use “I messages” when communicating. In the world of psychology and therapy, I messages refer to a form of communication that focuses on expressing your feelings (I feel _______) rather than blaming or accusing. However, to these tech savvy kids, I messages are those handy text messages Apple has on the iphone. Glad I asked because we were not speaking the same language!
