“Stop panicking, mom. No. Your CD player isn’t broken. You just have the song on repeat.”

Just when it seems our parents make headway in the world of technology, we realize they don’t understand a darn thing.

“No, dad. You don’t have to scroll backwards through 100 pages to arrive back at the homepage.”

For the over 55 crowd, technology can be a vast and scary ocean. When they call upon us to help, we ask that they carefully listen to our instructions and then are baffled when they doubt our knowledge. It’s almost as though a genetic code in them says, “Your child can’t possibly know more than you.”

Wrong. Oh…so…wrong.

Reddit users have done us the honours and shared their most endearing parent tech fails, which we have, in turn, collected and abridged for you. Warning: They may induce knee-slapping giggle fits or rolling over in your chair.
