Nope. In my 40s and I've been programming since I was about 12. Doesn't change the fact that there is rarely any need to drop into settings on any of these devices. Once they're configured, thats...

By the time you have kids, society as a whole will likely be even more reliant on technology. And taking that attitude, you'll be setting back your kids in some increasingly key areas.
