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