I'm 16, I've had a phone for like a year, and have been texting people since I got the phone and my parents and sister have "caught" me texting, whether it's them just walking into the room or me just thinking "screw it!" and then start texting.
I have no clue why, but I always hide my phone when they come in the room.
It's really annoying, even if I'm talking to people on face book I minus that window because I don't want them to know who I'm talking to, or what I'm talking about.
I hate it because, to my friends that I'm talking to, I just suddenly stop texting back.
I'm almost always texting girls because like 75% of my friends are girls and I like them better than guys (1-they're nicer 2- they're girls haha!)

I used to have weird insecurities about things like that around my family that I didn't have around other people. I was afraid to let them know what music I listened to, I didn't want them to catch me working out, I was even afraid for them to initially find out that I liked girls. You just have to try to get over that fear and move past it.1
