A new Parent-Millennial Child Tech Survey from Best Buy finds that fewer than one-third of millennials think their parents are very comfortable buying the right personal tech for themselves. Parents strongly disagree, however, with 66 percent saying they do just fine, thank you very much.

The just-released survey reveals similar misconceptions about tech support among parents and their millennial kids: almost half (47 percent) of millennials say their parents turn to them for tech assist at least once a week. But parents say they’re not nearly so dependent on their kids: only 17 percent said they seek assist from their kids that often. Parents do admit, though, to asking their children for assist, with more than half saying they ask for assist at least once a month.

“We’re often told that young people are more interested in and know more about technology than older adults, but that isn’t necessarily true,” said Derek Meister, a Cleveland-based Agent with Best Buy’s Geek Squad. “This survey reinforces what we see every day — parents are often tech savvy and seek advice in very different ways.”

Among the survey’s other key findings:

Millennials give parents little credit for making the most of their tech. While 60 percent of parents claim they know how to get the most from their technology, only 33 percent of adult children give their parents credit for really understanding their gear.

Dad relies on reviews, mom on son. Gender also plays a role in sourcing tech advice. Among parents who considered their children to be the most trustworthy source of advice, 64 percent are moms and 36 percent are dads. Dad, in fact, prefers expert reviews (60 percent) to advice from his millennial son or daughter. Moms tend to turn to their sons for tech assist more often than their daughters, with 39 percent of sons being tapped contrast with 28 percent of daughters.

Smart home devices intrigue – and confuse. In an interesting paradox, smart home devices are the products parents are most interested in but confess they’re not confident enough to buy (20 percent). Parents also have interest but lack confidence in selecting streaming devices (18 percent), smartwatches (13 percent) and home theater systems (13 percent).

Happy to assist, regardless. One source of agreement from the survey? Some 62 percent of parents say their adult children are happy to assist and 58 percent of adult children confirmed that.
