Parents are watching

Kids use PRW to mean "parents are watching." If you see this acronym pop up in your child's text or chat messages, you may want to take a closer look at the rest of their conversation ...

OTOH, if you're a teen who has received PRW during a text or chat conversation, you may want to refrain from sending anything that would get your friend in trouble with their parents. Instead, shift the topic of conversation to something boring and parent-appropriate, like hmwk or sports.
