Tables Turned

You know how you hear of Big Brother/Big Sister programs or surrogate grandparenting programs that pair needy kids with a mentor? Well, one of our local school districts is using this idea in the opposite fashion. They are holding free computer and internet classes for Senior Citizens to teach basic computer skills, internet browsing and safety - and pairing the senior citizen with a middle school student to help them out. Now isn't that a sign of the times?

What a great idea and I bet the seniors learn faster from the kids than they would othe adults! Will Brainy Boy be participating? They would LOVE him!

Whoever thought of that is genius!

That is such a great idea! I bet the seniors citizens love to be around the kids. And, it is probably really great for the kids to spend some time with the senior citizens. It's an excellent idea!
