All four of my kids take top marks in their schools for their grades. The real key to their success? Taking them to the library every weekend, which exposes them to a broader vocabulary and a sideline experience to many different looks at life through the eyes of hundreds of authors. They all have PCs... but they all spend more time with their noses in a book, by their own choice. As many of you have seen over the years, my one daughter has a hearing disability and has had many many surgeries to help with that. She does better than all the rest.

Teaching your kids what "no" really means very early helps a lot, but having confidence is a big part too. I couldn't be prouder of my kids, and I tell them often. Are they perfect? Far from it. Yet sharing in their success is so rewarding, I find it truly hard to understand why anyone would not want kids. I invest a huge amount of time into them though, and they are my #1 priority...everything else comes a far second. I guess maybe you get what you give? Too bad so few other parents invest as much as we do into our kids, because I'd really like to compare notes with other parents that do the same as we do to support our children's growth. The one family that does... also has kids with top marks, but one comparison is hardly a "scientific" compare. :p

My daughter is getting pretty into the PC stuff when I do play around with whilst she's down with me, we sadly don't get that much time together at the moment (long story, but won't bore you with all that rubbish) but I've got her loading up the server, practising replacing drives and when she was about 4, she put together a very basic but simple PC together, one of the E-350 AMD systems, works and does all she'd really need with it but that said, now I do have a new build for her, so I might try and get her putting that together.. I'm sure she'll be trying to play on Roblox or something or other :) I thought it was Minecraft that was meant to be cool?? :laugh:

Isabelle was 6 on the 21st August, she's got a geeky Dad, she will always be into tech in someway I'm sure!! :)

My wife is pregnant and our daughter will be born on October 30th, she warned me that if she sees our daughter in front of a PC because of me i am a dead Man :eek:
Congratulations!! :D
I think Isabelle had a laptop and desktop PC by the time she was about 4 years old.. New AMD Ryzen system on the way next!! :)

@xkm1948 Nah, it's the cat wot's the business! :D Yes, I love cats.

But seriously, it's great to see her take to it as she should be very comfortable around computers as she grows up.

The only caution I'll give is to not let her use it for too long at one sitting. Young children's vision is still developing and it's possible that she could develop a lazy eye over too much use. I'm thinking of my friend's 11 year old daughter who's glued to her iPad and now has the condition, plus her dad said the doctor said this was the likely cause. Granted it's not 3D, but it causes the eyes to point towards each other significantly due to the short focal length that's the problem.

With 3D and VR especially, the main problem that causes nausea etc and possibly lazy eye in kids, is that the physical focal distance is different to the visual focal distance, whereas in real life they're always the same. The brain finds this hard to process which is why it can lead to these conditions. This is why some manufacturers of 3D TVs have warnings and disclaimers about kids and 3D use in the manual.

Nope my oldest doesn’t really care about tech

Hell even my wife is hard to get to sit down and show her different techy things.

It's a shame if they don't share an interest but maybe when they are older they might? :)

Isabelle and I are always being daft and silly.. I mean, I think the pic below shows how daft we are pretty well :D

high schools (and, sadly, universities) have to ban smartphones during classes.
Believe it or not , in my country smartphones are forbidden in all schools , if a teacher or anyone caught you using your smartphone , u will eat $H!T , and your smartphone will be confiscated.:mad::confused::(

The Chinese actually have schools where they don't let kids use VR, computers, or tv's /tablets of any kind, because its been proven it leads to nearsightedness. So your daughter will prob need glasses eventually, depending how many hours she is in front of a screen / how close she is in front of a screen. Doesn't affect us older folks, only the development period.

She only got like 20 mins max they she was dragged off by her mom. So yeah.

Meanwhile I am planning to get her this, gotta pass on that molecular genetics research to the younger generations.

Those surplus scientific equipment sales from Universites are quite cheap. Won't take long to fix them up so I can teach her all about the cells

My kids have been exposed to PCs since the time they could waddle. But, was careful to give them opportunity to other avenues of stimulation. The Mercer mayor CD Rom based story books were their favorite ... click on a chimney and it tooted, click on a beach blanket and a grouchy crab came out. Equal time was give to actual touch and feel type toys, and they spent as much time as those to combined doing stuff with other children at the playground. Now in their twenties, they have varying groups of friends ...

28 year old is a pilot ... he shares his times amongst his piloting friends, he helps run a non-profit helping kids with cancer, has a "Jock group" and a "online community" of friends he plays competitive flying and shooters with ..... 26 year old works a lot burning the midnite oil trying to advance his career, also has nerd group of fantasy role player games ... online and board. Also has an off roading group that does, well you can guess and spends much of his time doing GF stuff.. The youngest (22) is too busy with work and college to spend much time doing other things. But what little time he has is split between GF and gaming.

As a former scoutmaster and little league coach, I'm always running into kids who Id frequently see when my kids were younger So many of these kids severely lacking in social skills because they just forgot how to talk to real live people. So while exposure to tech is a wonderful thing, allowing participation to the exclusion of all else is all to often stunting their growth as a person.

I was literally geeked at birth. Technology was just starting to get a foothold in the world as I grew up. It is true that early exposer to tech at a very young age can be harmful.

Don't have kids and for now I'm happy with that, I'm 28 so I'm more or less a kid myself.

Tho my ex's old cat (RIP that furball, heard that he died some time ago) liked to chill on top of my PC pretty much, though sometimes when playing games it drove me nuts when the cat's paw hit the power switch (Define R2 case, button on top), fixed that problem with Scythe's Kama Panel which has also a power button, and removed the case's button. No more shutdowns by cat! That cat also liked to chill next to me when I played PS2.

Also the cat often used to walk around on my keyboard, and you sure know what kind of crap that can do when you have your PC running 24/7 like me, and often I forgot to press Win + L :D

I do not do online banking etc. 'cause of what my kid with my (new at the time) 386 pc with 4 megs ram & Dos 5. He was 9-10 at the time, it scared me what he could do, , , , he's a good kid (36 now!), with a good mindset, but not all people are like-minded.

(edit: and a 14.4 modem!)
