5 reasons to Teach Your Kids to Code [Infographic] – The Wired Homeschool

Coding is not something that I am particularly fond of. I started out my college years learning to program at a local community college and soon got bored of the endless lines of code I had to decipher in order to complete an assignment.

These days, coding is completely different. Yes, being a programmer takes a keen eye but there a more tools to help debug and decipher the thousands of lines of code that someone will have to write.

Additionally, object-oriented languages have made it easier to accomplish tasks that used to take a few hundred lines of code. Kids also have a number of friendly tools available that can help them learn the basics and possibly spark and interest in a lifetime hobby or career.
