Parenting 
for 
High 
Potential, 
March/April 
2013
Even if your kids 
don’t go on to code 
for living, a basic 
understanding of 
programming 
concepts improves 
problem-solving 
and thinking skills 
which are both 
transferable and 
empowering.
“Learning to 
write programs 
stretches your 
mind and helps 
you think 
better, creates a 
way of thinking 
about things that 
I think is helpful 
in all domains.”
