Ok..I am so lost. I don't IM, but I get these letter in every day email now. The worst part is, I can't monitor my kids if I don't know what these mean. I know that LOL means lot of laugh ROTL means rolling on the floor laughing... I would like to know what the rest of them mean! PLEASE HELP ME!

I only know a few of them myself. ROFL = roll on floor laughing POS = parent over shoulder--- which is a big one LOL = laugh out loud KMA = kizz my a$$ Those are just a few I can think of off of the top of my head.
