It took my Mom less than 2 minutes to explain that to me, but it turned out to be one of the most useful lessons I ever had. I was perhaps 14 years old at the time, and never again typed with only 2 fingers.  I wish I had absorbed more of her advice with such determinaton.
I "hunted and pecked" a lot after that, but with ALL of my fingers, instead of just two. And almost before I knew what a "Touch Typist" was.....I was one.
And seldom has a day gone by since then that I have not used that skill.
What a Mom!  I would say she was perfect.......except for one thing; she never did buy me that pony.
