– From the beginning of this book –
●When I try to teach my child how to use a smartphone, it always ends up in a fight…
What should I do?
[Maki] It’s not your fault. I want my son and daughter to read this book too. Let your elderly parents who are struggling to learn how to use a smartphone know that if you treat them poorly, you will be doing them a disservice in the future!
[Masuda] Many of the students in the smartphone class had the same problem. “I can’t ask my kids questions on my smartphone at home because they get scolded right away if I ask them.”
[Maki] I often receive advice from children. Fighting over smartphones seems to be a common problem between parents and children. What should I do?
[Masuda] As someone who has been teaching seniors how to use smartphones for many years, what I would like to convey to the children who are in the position of teaching their elderly parents is, “Being patient and helping your parents practice using smartphones without getting irritated will ultimately help you learn how to use smartphones.” It means “to help yourself.”
[Maki] Mr. Masuda’s parents are seniors like us, and they only recently learned to use smartphones. As a child, have you ever felt strongly that you were glad your parents were able to use smartphones? [Masuda] It’s the coronavirus pandemic. Up until now, I would often go back to my parents’ house to check on my parents. But that was cut short due to the coronavirus. At times like this, my smartphone became a bridge between me and my parents. Through the video call, we were able to easily report on our current status while looking at each other’s faces. If my parents weren’t able to use smartphones, I think I would have been confused because I could only check in on the other person’s situation through a landline phone where I couldn’t see their face.
[Maki] If children feel that there are benefits for themselves, they may be able to calmly teach their parents how to use smartphones. [Masuda] Yes! Instead of saying cold things like, “Don’t you remember yet?” I want them to realize that if their parents can use a smartphone, they can feel better about themselves in many ways. [Maki] It may be a good idea for seniors to be aware that not all children are familiar with smartphones. From my point of view, sometimes what children are taught is not always accurate. Your son or daughter is just using a smartphone and is not an expert enough to teach you anything. That’s why I end up teaching in an unfriendly way, and when my parents ask me questions, I get irritated and say, “I don’t even understand!”
[Masuda] It may be obvious, but it may be important that we don’t forget to care for each other.
