Submission + - How soon to start coding with kids?

D-OveRMinD writes: "How early is too early to start coding with your kids? I have a 4 year old and want to get her started on coding...preferably C# or Java. I want to learn with her as I feel it will be a good "bonding" moment. She loves computers, games, et al. Anyone have any pointers on when I should start her on coding, what language we should learn to start, or something else that would point us on the right path to prepare her for the future? Possibly some videos to watch? For reference, even at 4, she loves watching Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan if that tells you anything. I know 4 might be a touch early, but she is very bright and I want to start as early as possible."
