What if your child aspires to something greater than a programmer? Give him or her the best you can and let him own his future.

Let your boy choose his career path, guide him aright from there. Parents shouldn't have to foist their interests on their kids, but could create the enabling environment for those kids to fly their dreams.

If you are in Abuja, you can come to Torbita Computer Training School at Infinity Trust House, Area 3, Garki, Abuja.

We also offer online Tutored training for people within and outside Abuja.

I'm not in Abuja unfortunately.

I salute your effort for trying to guide in him early in his professional life.
Alot of computer gurus today got introduced to programming at a young age and
anybody telling you he's too young has no IT background.

My first introduction was at 11years old with a Vtech computer and I learnt Basic Programming language (I don't know if they still exist).
By the time I got to the University, Basic Programming had become obsolete and we were learning C programming as a foundation language.
With the background I had in Basic, C was so easy while some of my classmates where still trying to get a hang of it. (If you know one programming laguage, learning other languages would be easy)

Being introduced at at young age will help him align his career and determine early what aspect of IT he wants to focus on or what language he wants to master. I would advise you enrol him in a school, online courses on programming at such a young age isn't encouraging as there are many questions online classes can't answer. There are Bootcamps like Audax, CodeSpark, SPark IT Academy that focus on children, learning with his peers will give him the confidence he needs, and most of these schools provide mentorship programmes that track his progress.

I must also inform you, learning programmng is like learning a new language fom the very basic. If he stops learning too early, he'll forget most of the syntaxes. I would recommend a minimum of 6 months of programming until it becomes a part of him.
Most informative comment so far wink

Have you wondered what he wants? I thought we're now past imposing careers on kids.
he his not imposing anything ....knowing how to program doesn't mean he would take programming as a career
