Good Web site for my son to learn how to use the cp on? He is 5.5 years old and I haven't let him learn on it yet but I think it is time he learns!

  • My 3 year old has been using the computer for a little while now. I got her the set of disney preschool cds. They are very educational and she loves playing them. She knows how to start them up and navigate around the by herself.

  • starfall.com is AMAZING!! I have had 2.5 yr olds use starfall. I have had children that have learning disabilities and thought processing disorders use starfall. I would think 6 is a little late to just be learning how to use the computer. I teach 3-5 year olds and all but 1 can use the computer, mouse. The 5 year olds can turn the computer on, login, logoff and type sentences and a short paragraph. By the time my son was 8, he was using word processing software at school to write papers. It is taught in school from preschool on up.

  • Well thanks for the web sites I didn't ask for bashing just because I waited... He gets sooo wrapped up in to things like this and obsessed over games and the cp that it was one fight I didn't need... He has messed with the cp knows how to use the mouse I just haven't had him play any games on it.. He is very smart and catches on FAST.. so don't freak out because I waited

  • I'm sure they don't mean to bash. These days a computer is becoming essential at very low grades. Mine is 6 and in first and has learned typing basics and how to use paint, word, and power point this year and he is learning some basics in excel. For a 5 and half year to not use a computer at all is a little different is all.
    Starfall.com is great as is coolmath.com
