If a Kid Won’t Get Off the Computer…

If your kid won’t get off the computer…

 

Perhaps you should take advantage of the situation. 
Give him your new electronic devices and the instruction manuals. 
He just might teach you how to use them.

Maybe you could give him a Nintendo DSi and let him turn ordinary pictures of objects in your house into kaleidescope magic.  This is our tabla and sitar (no we don’t play them).

 This is my favorite house plant – one of the few that have survived my care or lack thereof.

If your kid won’t get off the computer…

I mean seriously, if you can’t keep this kid away from the computer…

He just might be the next generation of IT professional.  I guess the Apple  PC doesn’t fall far from the tree.

      Hi Cindy. We really do have to pry him off! Scarily enough, with this blogging thing, the girls are saying that I’m becoming just as bad as both of them.

    Some compelling reasons to have kids. Who doesn’t want kaleidescope magic in his or her home?

    All that creativity in one family!

    You can’t fight technology, Era. It’s a losing battle. Nurture it, and you might have a future Bill Gates/Steve Wozniak on your hands. 🙂

      I know, it’s as if kids are born knowing how to navigate the technological world.
