When children learn to code, they develop the ability to bounce back after failure. They learn that failure isn't necessarily a bad thing, and in fact, it can often be something positive because it serves as a learning opportunity. This is one of the most important reasons why kids should code, as they will learn quickly that 'debugging' your code is half the fun.
When you fail and try again you can learn from your mistakes. Coding gives children the ability to try and try again until they succeed and produce the result they are looking for.

In our opinion, teaching kids code is something that can be done as early as preschool. In fact, we have an entire post dedicated to ideas for getting preschoolers started with coding. You can read this here. As early as age 5, kids can learn the basic concepts of coding. coding concepts that 5 year old can understand. Even kids who can't read can learn to code with block based coding.
