Lost in your teen’s emojis? Here’s a break down of the top teen slang for when you need a quick reference or when you want to show off your “cool mom” skills.


Let’s start with an easy one, shall we? Many of you probably know this one: bae, short for babe or baby. It literally stands for “before all else,” and is a term of endearment for your special someone.

Keeping it 100

To be authentic and truthful, as in “keeping it real.” It can also mean trying your absolute best – striving for 100%.


That’s Fire

Can refer to a person or their fashion, situation, performance, album, etc. meaning it is exceptionally cool or great – literally “lit,” if you will.



No Cap

No cap means “no lie” or “for real,” often used to emphasize someone is not exaggerating about something hard to believe or could be used as a call-out if someone is exaggerating.



As in, “dead from LOLing.” Something was so cute, so outrageous or so comical that you fell over dead in a fit of giggles.
