Mom with my iPhone

I know that the iPhone could be a real technical challenge for those who did not grow up with technology but I have managed to introduce my mom to my iPhone. She loves to read the important news on it or look at photos. That is, whenever I have something to show her. So this is how it goes.

I tell her that I have something for her to see and I tell her what it is. If she wants to read or see it then I saunter over with my iPhone in hand. She takes it very gently and reads and/or looks at what is on the screen. She often reads it aloud so that we can both interact and comment at the same time. It is so much fun because whereas in the past it was she who had to bring things to me, now it is the opposite.

It is something like the blind leading the blind but in a much more meaningful way. Mom is getting more used to seeing me with my iPhone but I doubt that she would ever use one on her own.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
