Teenage attention span

J: Hey Zach I'm just taking Leo out for a walk, could you turn the oven off in 15 minutes please.
Zach: Ok - 15 minutes, turn oven off. That'll be half past six. I'll set a timer for 15 minutes on my computer
J: Thanks honey

15 minutes later. 

Text from Zach : what was it I was supposed to do when the timer went off?

Technology can solve many problems. But our kids teach us it can't solve EVERY problem. What a great vignette - so glad you shared this!

thanks Carmi - so good to hear from you. I was stunned, shocked and ultimately inspired by your post about your stroke and I look forward to reading your book (please add me to your mailing list when it's out to buy). So glad you survived to tell the tale
