'When Parents Text' authors discuss the parent-child texting relationship

With 3G phones and Wifi capabilities expanding across the country, it seems parents can find their kids (young or old) anytime, anywhere.

In learning about this new mobile world, some parents have taken to texting and may not have necessarily learned the proper etiquette. Lauren Kaelin and Sophia Fraioli noticed this, and realized the new text-based relationship with one's parents could make for some pretty funny encounters.

Kaelin and Fraioli started the site WhenParentsText.com, and turned the submissions they recieved turned into the book of the same name, which was released on September 1st.

Today on American Morning, Christine Romans talks to Lauren and Sophia about some of the funny texts they've received as submissions and how cellphones have changed the relationship between parent and child.
