4. You're Old School
Let's face it - communication has changed. Drastically. Do you remember the first time you let an unwelcome caller go straight to your answering machine? It's payback time. Texting, email, voice mail, and posting through social media, are just some of the ways the world is connecting. The younger generation places talking on the telephone way down on the list as their preferred method of contact. If you're not texting, you're missing out on a perfectly delightful way to talk to your kids. Not sharing photos on Facebook or Instagram? Shame on you. Go beyond pushing for more phone calls, and get in their game. Learn the technology and then learn the proper etiquette.
