On this forum you will find much wisdom, experience and worthwhile counsel. You'll find sympathetic ears and hearts. I've found that it makes a big difference to talk to others who are or have had the same experience as my own. This is a great place to do that.
Is your dad computer literate? Does he naturally like to explore on the internet? If so, this is a great place to bring his questions and concerns. Here people ask ANYTHING and get straight answers.
