There are some tech core programming clubs if there aren't you can sort of help them get started with it maybe they can lead one and start one and if you really feel like you want to pursue this but don't feel the confidence you can hire a coach you can hire a coach online or you can hire a coach maybe locally who's just a programmer who is sociable enough to maybe come in for an hour a week and in coach you these kinds of coaches locally maybe in the United States they might range from fifty to hundred fifty dollars an hour if that's pricey a cheap per option might be to hire a overseas freelancer too instead of program the app for you to coach you over Skype and guide you along so that your project that you choose will keep on moving forward and you'll be able to launch your app or website so these are some interesting ideas to easily without too much frustration get your kid into being a tech nerd which is a very lucrative kind of a thing to be these days.
