Teaching an aging parent to use the internet can be a challenge — it requires great patience and consistency.
My mom is a vibrant, healthy outgoing older woman. Yet, convincing her to use the internet was challenging at first.
Recently, she finally gave in and agreed to learn. So we began early one morning. I called her on the telephone and told her to put the phone on speaker and place it next to the keyboard, so that she could use both hands. I then explained what the internet is and how people use it in their everyday life. I made sure to tell her to ask me any and all questions, that she may have had.
