teaching The Boy to use email

Toronto, 2017.08.24

With The Boy heading into grade four, we're looking at a first cell phone - and I'm teaching him how to use email. I don't know if his generation will use email for anything, ever, given how things are changing so fast. The other day I used the expression "I'm on the phone" to mean I was in a text conversation.

But when it comes to email, I figure it'll be a form of formal communication for some years to come.

Three reasons to be thankful:

  1. We only have to deal with one kid getting a mobile phone at a time.
  2. It's the less garrulous kid.
  3. He's not demanding the latest iPhone. Yet.

... I'll let you in on a secret. Big people are exactly the same as little people. They're selfish, squabbling children whose motivations are jealousy and greed. No one becomes big when the hit adulthood. They just become better at hiding how small they are.
