As you are away from your parents either for work or studies, now the easiest and cost effective way of communicating with them is through internet. And when you are back home to celebrate Christmas this year your parents keeps on asking you about the techie stuffs as that is how they can be in touch with you when you are not near.

So, to make your task easier, Google has come up with a TeachParentsTech.org, a “tech support care package” that’s intended to help kids teach parents about computer basics.

As per the Google blog post, the site permits the users to pick more than 50 basic how-to videos they could send to parents and to anyone who needs guidance to any tech issues. The videos cover topics from copying and pasting to sharing large files. The recipient will receive a message from the sender, along with a link to the selected videos.
Along with this the first 10,000 to send one of these online packages will have the possibility to send real tech support care packages via snail mail to a recipient of preference at no cost. When the post was published in the blog it is told that more than 2,000 parents are ‘served’.
