Need to impose rule that from 11:30pm to 7am, no kids on the Internet. Only adults who have jobs, pay the bills, and are responsible.
Can someone advise how?
Duncan, while I can understand your concern, I know that I have spent many nights working late because that is the only time that I can find where people leave me alone.
I'd be interested in hearing about what he is programming. The fact is, technology is running at such a fast pace that by the time there are college courses to teach programming skills, they are outdated. Learning by doing is a must for anyone who wants to succeed in IT and he may be on his way towards making big strides, but you gotta start somewhere.
My buddy's 16 y/o son is paying for college on his own via an app that he wrote in High School for the iPhone... Can you imagine? Wish I would have done that.
