I worry a lot when I see that may of today’s kids (mine included) spend way too much time as passive consumers. I need to encourage them to build more stuff (hope they’re not reading this).
Of course, given the wacky way that my brain works, I think of “Kid Programming” as something different:
Of course I could declare variables for my daughters, but that would be akin to treating women as objects, and we all know that’s not right.
I’d better stop now.
