“You got some bones to get some kicks.” “Backup your grill, you got the dragon.” “Boo, let’s go flossin.” Do these phrases seem like a foreign language? If you answered yes to this question, get the lowdown on teen lingo.
Between 1990 and 2000, the number of teens, age 12 to 19 soared to 32 million, an increase of nearly 4.5 million. By 2010, the teen population is supposed to peak at 35 million.
