Dads - next time you're sending a text to your child, you might want to see if you fall into one of these dad-texting categories.
The #DadTexts hashtag on Instagram has thrown up a few hilarious conversations between fathers and their children, consisting of tech fails, comical advice and excitable emojis.
Just remember next time before you press send, your child does have the ability to screenshot and share with the world.
