A Tech Support Care Package For Parents

Helping our parents or older friends break through that barrier that they think they are dumb about technology can be a tough call; when in fact they are on the same level as everyone else.  Yes, the new generation coming up is being exposed to technology like never before but that does not make them any smarter. In fact, as we progress in this age of digital technology, we are actually dumbing ourselves and our kids down to the point that someday our dependence on technology will become so strong that if it suddenly all turned “off”, we will be like zombies.

Ok, enough of Ramblin’ Rick’s theory on the digital technology age…  Today I wandered onto a site, brought to you by Google, called “Send Your Parents A Tech Support Care Package” that may be helpful in getting your parents (or older friends) to break through that fear barrier of using their computers.

Send Your Parents A Tech Support Care Package

Send Your Parents A Tech Support Care Package is at a very basic level and does not contain everything you need to know, but there are some interesting video tutorials that are quite good.  You will find four categories that offer an array of videos:

THE BASICS
WORLD WIDE WEB
COMMUNICATION
MEDIA
FINDING INFORMATION

What you do is fill out the form on the site, select your category and topic, choose some choice words, and send the tutorial instruction to Mom and Dad.
