Very inspiring!

When my oldest daughter was about 4 she was always watching me on the computer. So I spent $$ to buy her one of those oversized trackballs for kids, thinking the mouse would be too difficult. I also bought her a Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing program. She used the track ball for roughly two days and shoved it aside in favor of the mouse. But she could touch type very well by first grade. Today she does project implementation for a software company serving casinos. :)

He is now at the point where he wants to start understanding the scripts that he gets from the Youtube tutorials. The link below is a picture of my seven year old son reading Programming in Lua: 

Brings a tear to an old lua hacks' eye.
