While I agree that computer literacy is important for a kid to learn, t is important to be careful that your child does not become completely dependent on technology to function. Kids should still be limited to the amount of electronic stimuli in their lives. Though they may need computers for school and entertainment, a child should still learn about arts and music, and they should still maintain their physical abilities. So many kids today have poor coordination and social skills because they spend their time surrounded by technology in a somewhat virtual reality.
English and grammar skills are lacking because kids are so used to sending information in short texts. Many kids also lack social skills like public speaking and communication skills because they lack personal, face-to-face interaction. Science and math skills are even lacking because kids can find a program, website, or discussion board that can answer anything that is the slightest bit complicated. Balancing technology and the real world will likely prove to be the biggest challenge in the modern world.
