Millennials and their parents may agree on some things, but in surprising ways, technology isn’t one of them.

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.”
