I like Eleisha’s post on Me as a Teacher. The idea of servicing one’s own car via YouTube is pretty cool. My son damaged his surfboard two weeks ago and it was going to cost around $70 to fix professionally. I knew the time was always going to come where I had to learn how to fix a ‘ding’ and it looked like it was now.
I purchased a ‘ding kit’ from the local surfshop for $29.95 asked my sons to find a range of YouTube clips on fixing dings. Together my sons shortlisted the best ones and then I sat with them and we selected the best one.
We set up shop in the garage and brought out the friendly iPad to help us away we went. It was a fantastic experience and now the boys are talking about ways of making some extra pocket money by fixing dings.
