    Parents beware: Your kids probably know secret emoji language

    DENVER — It was Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year. And it’s quickly becoming the universal language of the Internet — after Apple included an emoji keyboard on its phones five years ago. It’s estimated 6 billion emojis are sent each day. But the cartoonish, seemingly innocent and playful use of emojis can have a dark side. It’s a new form of communication Sheila Allison and her 12-year-old use regularly. “I work odd hours.
