The age at which children become more tech-savvy than their parents let on
According to a study, by the age of 12, CHILDREN are becoming more tech-savvy than their parents.
More than seven in ten parents say children use terms they don’t understand.
According to a Vodafone study, digital safety topped the poll for the skills parents feel least equipped to help their children with.
Vodafone’s Nicki Lyons said: “When it comes to technology, any parent or carer knows what it’s like when you feel like your children know more than you do.”
Almost half of parents and caregivers (47 percent) think their kids are more tech-savvy than they are.
In fact, a new study has revealed that Britons believe their children’s digital knowledge exceeds theirs at just 12 years old.
More than seven in 10 parents (71 percent) say their children use technical terms they don’t understand — with 66 percent of parents admitting they’re familiar with digital slang like “GRWM” (get ready with me) and ” OOMF’ (one of my friends).
Other online terms parents couldn’t explain were “smishing” (SMS phishing), “NFT” (non-fungible token), and “digital activism.”
