Powerpoint and parenting…

March 2, 2010

Well, you may ask, what has parenting and powerpoint in common?  My initial answer would be that, except that they both start with the letter “p”, not much.

However, in a conversation today I was reminded of a presentation referred to by Nancy Duarte of Duarte Design in her excellent book slide:ology. The presentation refers to Dan Posts’s “punishment” for his kids – making a presentation!!! Hear Dan talk about Bungee Chord Parenting a.k.a. Dad 3.0.  (OK he did not use Powerpoint, but Apple Keynote…)

Makes the parent in me think… (and worry a bit)
