Typically, less than 10% of words are abbreviated in text messages.
Abbreviating is not a new language; instead, it has been present for many decades.
Children and adults both use SMS language, the latter being more likely to do so.
Students do not habitually use abbreviations in their homework or examinations.
Sending text messages is not a cause of bad spelling because people need to know how to spell before they can send a text message.
Sending text messages improves people's literacy, as it provides more opportunity for people to engage with the language through reading and writing. This is especially useful for school-age children. David Crystal (2008) TOP TEN THINGS CHILDREN AGED 5 TO 13 CAN DO:

John Paul Gee (2003) The elements of instruction --- should be presented to the mind in childhood, but not with any compulsion.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be rather a sort of amusement; this will better enable you to find out the natural bent of the child.
