Ever see the acronym "POS?" It is teenage Instant Messaging slang meaning "Parent Over Shoulder." It tells the other teen that their mother/father is standing over them, and to not say anything that might get them into trouble. If you need a definition of other slang acronyms (or any other internet terminology), you can use the Netlingo web dictionary.
