Building A Web Site, And A Relationship
from the awwwwwww dept
Apparently, building a website or doing other online related activities are replacing “family bonding” moments like building a birdhouse. It seems like mostly anecdotal evidence, but lots of families have stories about how kids and parents came together to work on some sort of internet related project, that helped both sides learn to communicate better with each other. How long until we have family counseling programs that force parents to make websites with their kids? Honestly, though, I do think this makes a lot of sense, and is probably worth studying more. The main thing is that usually it’s the kids who more in control when it comes to technology – and it really lets them open up with their parents to be teaching rather than being lectured to (often the source of resentment).

And when these kids grow up,
they will be lecturing their kids about how to build a web site, and how this is supposed to “liberate” them.
It’s like the current generation of parents who think that watching Peanuts is some sort of special event — to kids, it’s just low-quality animation set in a bygone era.
