My son is little; and he loves technology. He has his own electronic devices, he has a folder of apps on my phone and he loves to make video emails for his cousin. I have struggled with the never-ending battle of too much screen time with him, but I see now there is a silver lining.

You see, one day he will be my teacher. One day I will be asking him questions about my new-fangled piece of technology that I don't understand. How do I know this? This study has told me so.

The Journal of Communication has published a study indicating that around 40% of adults have learned about technology from their children. I can totally see that.

So, when I show my son new technologies now I am patient and kind and caring. Because I really hope that my son is that way with me when I ask him how something works for the 300th time.

What technology have you learned because of your children? Tell me in the comments.

Don't forget the eye rolling. Mine will definitely be rolling his eyes at me...

It blows my mind when my Sonny Boy picks up my iPhone and does something I didn't even know it was capable of doing...I didn't even have a computer in my house until I was in my 20's (does that make me sound old....oh well, I guess if the shoe fits).

You are right, our kids will be sighing at us in the future and telling us we are so out of touch with technology as they are teaching us to use the latest and greatest gadgets.
