    Ever go home for the holidays and find your parents asking you to help them with “techie tasks†like uploading photos to the Internet?

    You’re not alone. A bunch of folks over at Google find themselves in this situation nearly every time they visit their families around this time of year. That’s why they’ve launched TeachParentsTech.org, a “tech support care package†that’s meant to help kids teach parents about computer basics.

    According to a Google blog post, the site allows users to select more than 50 basic how-to videos they could send to parents  or frankly, anyone else who might need a little tech help. 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.
