Trading Places

With the internet, the roles of parents & children become reversed, & I don’t mean in the way you’re probably thinking of. Offspring have to protect their parents.
We have to warn our mums & dads not to reply to emails from strangers (particularly from Nigerians promising cash), not to click on pop-ups (no, you haven’t really won ï½£10,000,000 because you were the 500,000th visitor), and to make sure their virus protection is always up to date. We warn them to be careful out there on the internet, to wrap up warm, and not to talk to strangers. We want them to have a good time, but we worry a little bit.
So already roles begin to reverse, and I guess this shifts further as we all get older. Wierd.
