Neat Trick for young kids.
The passwords should be the phone numbers they should always know!

Starting at 2, my daughter got her first computer (an old spare), I removed the WIN, ALT and other KEYS that cause problems.

By 5 she was doing a little home key practice
By 5th Grade she could type over 60 WPM!

Another good idea we used:

Practicing Touch Typing for 2-3 minutes (increasing over time), was the PENANCE she had to pay to PLAY!
Everything she was given, had a condition attached to it, like study time, reading time, math time.
She did her "WORK" first, and then had access to games, walks and drives...
The little snot learned to complete EVERYTHING in the first 1hr of the day, all summer, so she could have the rest of her day. LOL...
