I am trying to teach my son, who is 5 years old, and get him more interest in computers. I was hoping to try and get a cartoon, video game, or something similar that would relate to a kindergarten age child. I work in the AutoCAD field and I double as a tech so he has seen me work on computers before. Any advice in how to help a child learn about computers would be greatly appreciated.

First off, in another couple of years, he will be all over computers just to play games he plays at school and those he hears his friends talking about. In four years, you'll need dynamite and a spatula to get him off the computer.

I say let him develop his own interest in them. Both of my kids sure did! :wink:

Yeah, just get him addicted to games, that how I got into computers. :D Flash games should be good for now, then get actual games whens he's older. Newer games means upgrades and that will lead to the hardware side of things.
