Do Parents Know Secret Emojis?
Do parents really know the Emojis in their midst? Well, that is another question raised by many parents of young kids. They might not know it but they too use Emojis all the time – sometimes in unintentional ways.
We know it is a trend with teenagers and the younger generation because it has been going on for a long time now. It is a means of bonding, of communicating and of letting the kids know that they are loved. It is said that “word of mouth is the best form of advertising”. Well, there is definitely nothing wrong about it at all. In fact, it is even better because it can reach so many people.
Emojis have been around since the year 2021 when a Japanese company, Sony, came up with the idea to make an interactive character with the use of the PlayStation 2. This was the time when the word “emoticons” came into existence. Basically, it is just a short term for emoticons. There is no particular meaning for them other than expressing a mood or a feeling. Today, there are already several versions of this system available, and each of them is capable of doing things in a different way.
One example is the Friend Zone
There is a special place on the PSP where you can chat with your friends and it looks like a chat log. However, the Emojis that are displayed are not the standard faces. Instead, you get to choose from a variety of Emojis such as a smiley face, a kiss symbol or one that resembles a heart. In this way, you express each other’s emotions without necessarily saying those words.
Another great application is the sticker package. As a matter of fact, there are already some kids who collect the Emojis which have different characters from the TV series and the Harry Potter series. They put these stickers on their bags, lunch boxes and even on schoolbags. If you are going to a friend or if you want to let a kid know that there is something in their bag that needs his attention, then this is a very good way of doing it. The sticker is a very simple way of letting the kid know that there is something important inside the bag.
For older kids, there is an application called i-Ribbit
It looks like an ordinary alarm clock. When the child wants to set the alarm, all he has to do is press the power button twice. This way, the words i-Ribbit flash before the child’s eyes. This way, the child gets to know what the words mean and what they stand for. He also gets to learn how to identify them with the help of the Emojis which are displayed in bright colors.
The Emojis that are found in messaging software such as Facebook are actually a very popular way of letting kids know about things inside their bags and on their desks. Children like to express themselves through the Emojis that are found in these applications. A lot of schools are actually allowing students to customize the Emojis that are found on their desktops. Kids can easily choose the ones that they want to use. Once you do this, you can rest assured that your kid will never be bored.
One of the reasons why the Emojis are being used by young and old alike is because of its wide applications
More people are using this application to keep in touch with each other. The use of the Emojis may also come in handy when the need arises. As a matter of fact, this little secret may be more useful than you think. So, start looking for your kid’s favorite Emogee now and show your child how much you love him or her.
