I believe that you should teach your children at a young age about computers. However, I am the first one to say, that unless it is a closed piece of software like the one pictured, (Closed meaning it is hard to close the program.) you should not leave them alone. This coloring software provides music, once out of the program the music stops. Its very smart. I have a software engineering degree and I don't think I would have come up with that one.
I also put a little sticker on the mouse so that she knew what button to press. (I will admit it here, this is a one-up that Mac has on PC.)
