What does PRL stand for?

Parents are listening

Kids use PRL to warn those they're talking to that their "parents are listening." Teens most often use this acronym while they're voice chatting, to ensure the person they're chatting with doesn't say something unfit for parental ears.

Sending PRL via text chat is a discreet way of getting someone to watch their mouth while parents are around. If you're a parent, and you saw your child send PRL while chatting online, you may want to secretly stick around for a bit, to see what your child and their friends are saying while you're away ...
