So how many of us, tech savvy though we like to think we are, haven’t been here before? – the phone conversation with your kid that starts with ‘Tell me again – how do I make my computer do (fill in the blank)?’ There is now possible solution and yes, maybe even a way to impress your tech guru with your skill (not guaranteed). Head over to TeachParentsTech.org, a website (created by Google) that offers 2 minute videos with step by step instructions on everything from changing your wall paper (on your computer!) to resizing images, blogging and more. And if you’re on the kid end of that conversation send this blog post or a friendly email to your parents today. Don’t forget to tell them how lucky you are to be their kid.
(True confession: I found this in the latest issue of the AARP mag. I don’t subscribe, they just know. Believe me, if they haven’t already, they’ll find you too.)
