Texting experts are warning parents about new codes that kids are using to “sext” or inappropriately message each other.

The codes are made up of numbers and letters and sometimes ’emojis’.

For example, 53X stands for sex and WTTP means Want To Trade Pics?

DoSomething.org says 40 percent of teens are ‘sexting’. They say 34 percent of them do it to feel sexy while 12 percent feel pressured to do it.
