Our kids have their holidays from school – 8 weeks of free time. They have almost no idea what to do and the weather is not helping (rain) 😉
Our son is 15 (almost 16) and wanted to become an architect but since last year he does not want to do that anymore. He does not know what he wants to do and lost his goal to work for at school.
Now he thinks about becoming a director of a business or something with programming. To see if ‘programming’ is his thing I have found a task for him.
For this task he needs to do a few things:
- Learn about WordPress
- Install WordPress
- Make a website with WordPress
- Review my WordPress manual and mark what needs to be updated
For this last point I will pay him.
There are plenty of guides online where he can learn about WordPress. So I sent him an email with some examples and a video course.
For the hosting he can use my account. By the end of this week I want to look at the website with him. Every day I will give some soft guidance and tips what to do and how to move forward.
The brains of boys his age are often not yet developed in planning individually. So I will support him on this point.
Then he needs to go through my WordPress manual and mark all the points that require updates, especially the images. This way I can update this manual and prepare it as a new product on my website.
I will share with you how he did on these tasks and how the website looks.
