Parents of teenage kids know that maintaining a close relationship can be hard. The answer to this problem according to Samsung is text messaging. Samsung conducted a survey of family text messaging habits and found that texting broadened the lines of communication for many parents and teens.

Over half of the respondents say that texting has improved their relationship. The survey shows that the average teen sends 455 text messages each month and receives an average of 467 messages. The average parent receives 96 text messages and sends 84 per month.

Samsung says that 6 out of 10 parents say that their kids helped them become better texters. 68% of American parents communicate with kids via text message. 56% of teens 13 to 19 say that they communicate more with their parents since they began texting.
