Oh my goodness!!! Tonight I helped my teenage son set up a blog for a school project he is working on. The project is about how they can beautify parts of a local area, which is a really nice concept. His group has chosen to create an urban green space on an unused lot where the community can sit and take in the surroundings, where teenagers can hang out. An area that is both inviting and practical, a place that will bring people together.
Anyone who has teenagers can testify to the fact that our adolescence know everything! You name it, they know it! They have an answer for everything. If you try to show them an easier way, a better way, they just scoff and are quick to remind you that you know absolutely nothing. Never mind that you have been running a blog for over year now. Never mind that you too were once a teenager, unfortunately this has no relevance to them at all.
I guess the end result is what counts and my son was able to create a lovely blog which will hopefully gain him a good grade at school. Challenging as this experience may have been it was also fun. I love spending time with my son. I enjoy our banter. He may do my head in at times with his know it all attitude, but truth be told our children are miles ahead of us when it comes to technology, still there is always some things they can learn from mum and dad right?
