I faced a full scale mutiny in my house this week. It emerged from nowhere, as these things often do, catching me unawares as I sat around the kitchen table with my children, all of us tip tapping away on various laptops or tablets.

I was catching up with a bit of work and the kids, even my four-year-old, were completing their online homeworks, when I noticed the hum of disgruntled murmuring emanating from my two eldest. I asked what the problem was and my son, egged on by his big sister (who's too smart and experienced to put herself directly into the parental line of fire), told me that he hated having to sit around the kitchen table to work.
