USA Today has a Millennial translation guide

I am a parent of a 12 year old, and she hates it when I use words like "lit" or "fam". I guess because to her, I am just her lame ass Dad who is trying to be cool....but I AM COOL! (Or at least I tell myself that)

So USA Today put together this handy millennial translation guide so parents could understand what their kids are saying....JUST DON'T USE THESE WORDS WITH THEM =)
