Gadget girl who now teaches me

Children adore being spoilt by their grandparents, but is it too much?

VERITY LUSH: Don’t blame gran for kids munching on e-numbers

Ilike to think I’m quite clever when it comes to the latest technology and gadgets and I’m often the go-to man when friends and family need their new television hooked up, their printer installed or their new mobile phone set up.

I’ve even been called to assist in changing a ringtone on a mobile phone and waking up an unresponsive tablet computer. It’s something I enjoy doing, so it is never a chore.

It seems I have passed on my love for technology to my five-year-old daughter Caitlin who has recently been teaching me a few things.

On our TV box I’ve got many programmes recorded to watch later.

Caitlin has also worked out how to record her favourite kids’ shows. So now when I scroll down the recorded shows I’ll see shows like Scooby Doo and Barbie have been added.

But then Caitlin showed me something I didn’t know was possible: how to separate the recordings so I only see my recordings and she only sees hers. The go-to gadget man now has a go-to gadget daughter.
