I am sending this to my grown children so they can use it to raise my grandchildren.

Last Christmas I had the idea of enabling and gifting some cameras to younger family members. I am father and Grandpa who like to be relevant and stay close to my prodigy (w/o being "creepy") It seemed like a great idea, and since I've done it (photography) all my adult life, I felt I could share so much. I started months ahead, put a lot of thought into it, and slowly purchased some gear (nice, quality used stuff, stuff from my own collection and some nice bridge cams for the younger ones. Comes the holidays and I find - It was all a waste of time, no one wanted any of it, they have their silly phones and couldn't be bothered.

I will most likely be the last photographer in my extended family that knows anything about real photography (besides my wife, who was excellent on her own). I meant well, was also going to provide some training, etc. yes, the phones take some pretty good "small photos", but other than FB, or staying on their phone till it dies or is destroyed, no one ever see's them. No prints, no albums, etc. Any shots of anyone that we want, I have to basically sneak, as no one even wants a pic taken (and these are not "ugly" family). Sorry for my tale of woe, at least I should be able to get my investment back, as any purchases were well done, good value. Now back to photography!!!!

So basically you use one addiction to treat another addiction.

You need another panel showing printers, papers and inks.

Teach Them right from wrong, teach Them morals, and teach Them about Our Lord and They will not want to offend Our Lord or Their Parents. They will know better.
