Presently, every kid is probably familiar with video games, smart phones, tablets, and other electronics from a very young age.  But instead of giving kids computers, laptops, and phones for playing games why don’t we ask them to make their games by their mind and choice. And there is no perfect age to learn to code.

If any kid has an interest in coding and he or she is keen to make their own game by programming and coding, there is no harm in that.  Kids as young as 7 years can start coding and can learn to make basic games. Technology is expanding and has become an essential part of our life. New inventions are taking place. The invention of robots and A.I., has taken the world of technology to new heights.

Learning coding at a young age can set kids for a lifetime of opportunities for success. Coding is a basic literacy in the digital age, and it is important for kids to understand and be able to work with and understand the technology around them. Having children learn coding at a young age prepares them for the future. Coding helps children with communication, creativity, math, writing, and confidence. It enhances their creativity.  It helps in developing a child’s mind and makes them more innovative.

There are many facilities established around the world that can teach you the art of coding. You can also learn through books, apps, websites, YouTube videos, courses, and all sorts of different avenues. In school also students are taught basic programs that can help the students to get an idea about it.

Giving kids a basic understanding of programming can change the way kids look at everyday technology. It may also open their eyes to the limitless possibilities coding knowledge offers. Learning to code is fun if a child is interested in it. Parents should be there for kids in every step and they are also. They usually like the idea of preparing their kids for success and giving them the best possible chances of getting into great universities. This is a good motive, but what’s even more beneficial for kids who code is that they will learn how to think logically. Introducing children to coding their early elementary years is the best age for a child to start coding. This way, they will use the perfect cognitive moment to sow seeds for more complex knowledge later. Many great coders started learning around the age of 5 or 6. We should see the child’s interest. So, there is no particular age of interest that applies in every condition.
