Apple ID's for your parents - how do you do it?
I just updated my parents to iPhone from Blackberry. What is the best way to setup their devices as it relates to apple ID's? My mom will be the one taking all of the pictures and they both will have very limited music on their devices. My dad wont even have an email account (unless I can put their combined Gmail account on both devices) and my dad isnt on FB. How would you setup?

I would suggest making them one Apple account using the shared gmail account (you have to have the email address to create an apple account), then yes, you can put the gmail account under email on both devices. They should even be able to facetime each other using their phone numbers.

I set my folks up with Apple IDs and email accounts; added their credit cards to buy stuff and picked them a password that's secure while easy for them to remember (because taping it to the back of the phone would defeat the purpose of having a password).
