What is the youngest age possible to begin training your child to use a computer?

I have a three month old boy and I was wondering how soon I can start teaching him to get ahead in a competitive technology based society. Any suggestions?

    Mine learned through osmosis while they were in the womb.

    My hubby’s best friend has a 3 yr old daughter who can run circles around me on computers in almost every way. I think that your baby probably can’t use a computer yet but you can definitely introduce the computer as a part of daily life. Get him visually acquainted with it and he will get more interested as he gets older. There are computer learning programs for young kids too so check those out.

    a lot of my friends have made there kids facebook or bebo pages (setting them up so only family or friends could access them off course) and updating them regularly to show the childs progress, and as the kids got older and started walking, learning to talk, they started to show an interest, so it became a normal thing for mummy to read peoples comments out loud, and child to tell mummy what to respond, then as they got older learning to do it themselves. It’s a good way for kid’s to keep in touch with distant family members (that aunt in another country, etc), learning how to use a computer, and of course, a good fun reading excerise at the same time!

    No TV or computers until 2 years old.

    Let your baby be a baby, and do age-appropriate things.

    What is the big hurry?

    When our 27 year old son was very little he would sit in our laps while we were at the computer. He learned his letters with some simple games we had for our computer way back then. Most schools offer keyboarding and basic computer skills in kindergarten/1st grade.

    Your child will have plenty of exposure to computers without you worrying about formal training.

    You can start teaching him whenever you like. It will be several years before he starts learning anything from it.
