Day 30: The Talk

This piece is inspired from a conversation that I had with my wife and kids yesterday morning. As you’ll see, my tongue is firmly planted in my cheek. Read and you’ll see…

The Talk

My wife and I are having the talk with our kids.

You know the one.

Every parent has it or at least they should.

While I’m sure my kids will say that they don’t need the talk since they know everything about the topic, it still has to be said.

I can already see my daughter’s eye rolling and that I’d rather be anywhere but here expression on her face.

My son will drift off into space, trying to pretend that this interaction with his parents isn’t happening.

They will tell us that they understand everything. They know what is and isn’t responsible. They understand the risks.

It’s all playing out in my mind.

The only problem is neither my wife nor I know where to start the conversation, it just seems uncomfortable.

So, where do we start?

Where do we start the conversation around the limits of using technology responsibly?

Perhaps you were thinking that this was a different talk. 🙂

  1. You are a humorous writer, too! A rather successful one at that. I’ve loved getting to know you as a writer this month. Thanks for sharing another great slice.

    1. Thank you! It’s nice to get to know you, Mary and Sally as writers. As I wrote to Fran, you learn a lot about someone from reading what they choose to write about on a daily basis.

  2. Yep, I thought you were going to be talking about the birds and the bees!

    This piece reminded me of the twists some of Bob’s slices take. If you haven’t read his blog, you might want to check it out: arjeha.wordpress.com.
