Oh I have an easy solution to that. (grin)
You explain that you understand the new generation loves texting and facebooking and whatever elseing but actually communicating in meaningful depth. Helpfully add that every generation has their favorites for such things. That's true, right?
This is the point to note that use of the voice telephone was the compromise to the 'older crowd' and if simple voice communication is too troublesome, then you can each stick to generation-tested methods. You can look in the text world when you need something ...and kiddo can send snail mail, along with awaiting the response that same way, when something is needed in reverse.
Or...that voice thing could just be stuck to as what isn't such a bad compromise after all, eh?
....See if that helps?

I don't have teens, I have 30 y olds. They don't answer my calls either. Parents are annoying I guess. Until they need us for something. My daughters nickname is Aneeda. She a need a this, a need a that. The only time she calls is when she needs something.
