Kaleb is 10 years old.

When we DO have young members (you have to be at least 13) please DO remember you were a kid once- and that in a few years, the KID will be a VOTER.
Completely understood and absolutely true. Time, maturing, and willingness to learn and he can be taught all he wants i welcome it as well and i would actually enjoy (given the opportunity) doing so one on one in person i like doing that very much. At any rate, the time out probably pissed him off a bit... Hopefully that blows over he can understand the reason and still allow fellows to help him out if he is willing.

By the time i was ten years old, i had a .22 bolt rifle, a h&r .410, and was picking out a Marlin model 60. My nephew had his first deer by that age (supervised). Of course, it was my family that taught me about firearms, not a interweb forum; i guess i understand that rule. It would be nice to have a "kiddie pool" area of the forum, but that might be a lot to ask of the staff.

We need to teach them that real firearms arent like the video games and require extreme attention, then teach them the fundamentals of firearms safety.
I completely agree with that

To a degree, I also think that is a good idea. Most members here are more then qualified to share their wealth of knowledge, especially when it comes to kids. I personally have gotten great information here when i was first teaching my son about firearms. I know for a fact that the more knowledgeable members would never steer anyone In the wrong direction.
