Personally, I HATE talking on the phone. I tell parents that they can text me between 7am-9am or 4pm-6pm or expect a reply within 24 hours.
The same applies to email. I've never had a problem. I have bad anxiety about talking on the phone so I'd much rather text. I have never had a parent abuse this privilege. I also make my email available for longer messages. I explain on back to school nigh that texts should be kept to short messages like "can you remind me what day the Halloween party is?", and emails and calls should be for longer conversations and or/concerns.
