The joy on her face when she receives emails on her tablet is priceless. It just shows how contrasting perspectives are. I know the “joy in my heart” when I receive emails

I also get a notification when she’s about to download an app on her tablet and I can review it and give the go ahead or not. It’s brilliant.
I’m teaching our daughters the rules and etiquettes of interacting with people online and making sure they understand what’s appropriate and what’s not. Their mum has been having these talks with them for a long time. I can’t overestimate how important this is for their future.”
