Typing software

If you are looking for a good typing software for your child, I recommend this.

I use this to have it teach my girl typing. After every lesson, you get a medal. Now, in exchange for a gold medal, my girl can trade it for credits for her habbo. :)

But seems like must pay one. Here's a site which lists quite a number of other software. Interestingly, it also says that parents should not pressurize kids under 7 years old to learn typing :).

Here's another good site for kids typing software too.

But for the cheapskate me, I'll stick to the free online ones. I found one here:
kids.learn2type.com.

Tried the online test. Score of 100% accuracy and 61 wpm. Is that good?

I learn my typing without any software. And when I looked at how my kid play computer, it is quite amazing, they just learn so fast, don't even know how he did it.

Yes...must pay.. but I think quite worth it. :) Not expensive...less than 50, I think...can't quite remember.
