American families exchange an average of 10,384 messages a year, according to new research. Within these messages, parents will text their child “Where are you?” an average of 989 times, “When will you be home?” an average of 1,018 times and “I love you” an average of 1,186 times a year. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Life360, the study found that families use one-on-one messages to stay in touch with each other for nearly every aspect of their lives. The top activity families use one-on-one messages for is making dinner plans — at 53 percent. Next in line was coordinating errands (43 percent), coordinating pick-up and drop-off for school and extracurricular activities (46 percent), and checking in on everyone (43 percent).
