RitiwkTld32yThis seems a pretty good philosophy.
I wished I can give 1000++
possum12372yI got a Lego Mindstorms set when I was 8, which came with PC software to create programs and load them onto the "RCX" base brick. The programming was done by dragging action or decision blocks after one another.
TL;DR What I mean by this: Anything that helps breaking up ideas into simple separate steps teaches that special thinking needed.

The question is not "how"
The question is "why the fuck wouldnt you let a 5yro be a child"
How to give the child a pillow to sit on is the real question here
Parzi94752yreminds me of that one time i managed to get a nonverbal tech savant to use his pictograph communication software thing by implementing logic into it (added buttons for "if", "then", "do", "else", "while", "for", etc.) and he basically would write if/else blocks or for/while loops to tell someone how to do something. (He constantly got frustrated since he couldn't tell people how to do stuff which was pretty much his only issue)
He was like 8 at the time.
He's now 13. He uses Assembly.
