WATCH: Mia Freedman chats about how technology has changed parenting.

These days it’s the kids giving us lessons.

Remember going to “computer lessons” at school, back when they were still a scary new invention? (You know, during the Dark Ages…)

Now, our kids seem to be permanently attached to their screens and technology is evolving so fast you can almost imagine them teleporting to school in a few years.
