What does PPDA stand for in online chat?

Parents pacing de area

If your child is a big nerd, they might use PPDA to mean "parents pacing de area." This acronym warns whoever your child is chatting with that you're walking around and might see their messages.

While you're unlikely to actually encounter PPDA (PAH and P@H are more common), if you do, you may want to take a closer look at your child's chat conversation. It's possible there's something there that your child doesn't want you to see.
