Gadget girl who now teaches me

Don't worry children, it won't hurt a bit...

CLIVE SMITH: Third World War fears from the internet generation

Have your say

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.
