How to help your parents with technology?

Hi, I was just wondering what your guys opinions were on teaching technology to your parents? Specifically relating to PC's and Andriods, because I keep getting asked by my mom and pap to teach them things about their smartphones and computers. What are some of your experiences with this? Thanks

I don't.

The cell phone is old school flip phone and the computer is Windows but if that gets too hard we can pop in a ChromeBook.

Learn by doing, I think...

that's the best way (especially if our memory is not what it use to be).

If your parents have enough interest in this stuff to be asking questions help them out.
They fed you for 20+ years.

Show them how to do a search on google.

At first this stuff is all gibberish but over time they will pick up enough pieces that it kind of makes sense and you'll get fewer questions.
