Hello friends and mylotters! I was so surprised just now when I saw my baby using the mouse and playing games in our laptop! Don't know if I will feel happy about it or not,lol! She just used to watch her father playing games and enjoying it but when hubby went upstairs to get something,my baby sat in front of her father's laptop and move the mouse and when I look at it,she's moving the mouse on the right path to play the game,haha! AM I just over reacting? I mean,at her early age,she already knows how to use the mouse,lol! Do you also have the same experience with your kids? How old are they when they first started playing games in your computer?

Wow, you have a smart kid! I haven't seen any kid like yours doing computer games and I don't have a kid yet but surely your daughter is amazing. You just have to be very careful because computers and all other electronic gadgets are high in radiation that can cause your daughter some eye problems in the future. You should watch her play and not too close on the screen.

Hello my sweet friend This is wonderful and brilliant. You should feel very proud. At three this is good that means she is developing and motivating her brain. This is actually good because that means she is curious. The bad part is that you will no longer be able to use your own PC because she will want to from here on. lol

Nice! You got a smart kid right there! Haha! I have no kids yet but I think it's not impossible to have a kid at 3 knowing how to play games on the laptop. Kids are really receptive to new things on this age up. :)

Times have certainly changed LOL! My daughter learnt how to use a PC when she was around four years old and now, at nine years of age knows more than I do and I work on the computer every day! Kids seem to be so more adept these days and technology is such a part of everyday life that they seem to automatically understand it and use it. Your little one sounds like one smart cookie!

Hello my friend! Haha,wouldn't be surprised if my baby asks me to give her her own laptop too someday! Most of my nieces too play games at PC and they are too young like 5yrs old! They even have their own fb account and play games on fb,oh my! Well,their fb account was done by their parents of course because my niece requested for it so she can play the games on fb,haha! They are really different compared to us before,haha! Have a nice day too!

My son dabbled with my laptop at the age of 2. By the age of 3, he was playing those kids games where you pop a balloon or an egg or something :) I really don't know how he learned to play those games. But I remember carrying him when he was a baby while I was using the laptop. It was really quite surprising for me. At age 6, he knew how to search and download games. He just asks sometimes for the spelling of the word so that he could type it in. He's even better with using PCs than his grandparents :)

Hi, my friend, long time no see. Your baby has an intelligent brain. She is sooo smart and cute. I can imagine how she play computer, even she doesn't know what is it. I only saw my nephew who plays computer when he was only 2-year-old. But he only could use mouse to check the label, not playing computer. How supering for this good news!!!

:) if u keep ur eyes open u'll find that she knows many other things...her look in her eyes, her silence apart from her childish babble will mean a lot....if she is taking something in her hand, observe her observation, her observation of people in a party or a crowd.....many things...just check....:)

Children do exceptionally well learning from the older members of their families. When I was three years old in 1985, we did not have computers in the home, but we had a piano. I learned how to play the piano just from listening to music I liked. My husband's son taught himself how to do all kinds of things with the computer when he was around three years old. This is no surprise, and a sign that you have a very bright child. My step-son is a genius. I'm not just saying that because I'm biased, I'm saying that because anyone who knows him can see he's a genius!!

I think today the children are smarter. I don't really know why. Perhaps the nutrition is better and the pregnant women already try to listen to music etc. and then the baby already starts to learn something in the belly:) My son also knows how to use the computer when he was little. At that time he used the mouse to draw the fan:) I can see from your avatar photo that your daughter is so cute:) I love China

Hi youless! That's also what I have in mind,maybe my baby is smart 'cause I took care of her even when she is just in my belly. Took all the vitamins my baby needs for her brain and bones development,I also had milk intake during that time,I know this is one factor why kids are smart these days. So your son is also great in computers,they are both great in mouse too..your son and my baby,haha! Thank you for saying that she's cute,she is the one in my avatar,she's just 1yr old in that picture. See yah!

Kids are intelligent with technology these days. They seem to be able to use the television remote control and the mouse of the computer at an early age. Your 3 year old daughter is bright and will be very good at computing when she reaches school. My soon to be 4 years old son has got a laptop. He is learning to play some Thomas the Tank Engine games on it. For his birthday I hope he will be getting some educational CD Roms. Now he is not touching my laptop. My daughter is not yet old enough to have a laptop.

Hi. mtrguanlao. My kids were about 3 and 5 when they started to really learn how to move their way around the computer. Your daughter is very smart! I really do enjoy knowing that my kids can go from website to website. It is so amazing when they are so young at that age and they can figure out what to do.

Kids are very smart. They observe and they learn fast. More importantly, they are interested in things that move especially when the mouse move around the screen. The more you restraint them, the more fascinated they become and enjoy tapping the keyboard. That'w when they are about a year's old.

Children are so much smarter than give them cresit for. Computer technology and skill is even there to hel[p nurture and develop even our smallest children. Nothing is impossible to them.

Yes,agree with you sender! And I also believe that the vitamins and the food that they eat is also another factor why they are smarter. They are becoming more curious and observant in everything! See yah!
