comment Senior software developer
I feel for you, I'm in a similar situation with my current job and I've started looking for a new because of it. I've even had multiple conversations with my boss about it and I keep getting ignored, very, very irritating.

comment If you spot a software bug and fix it, do you tell the client?
Your right that is possible and if your client is like that, then I can see your dilemma. You may want to steer toward clients that will accept that human mistakes can be made. At least that would be my preference anyway. :-)

comment What to do when blocked
Agree with this as well. We were built to need rest from time to time. I do the meditation as well as gardening. Helps to clear out the mind and distress a bit.

I have the opposite problem. I'm usually too tired after work to work on my side projects.

He's ten and in elementary school. The only thing I'm seeing for his age group is the Lego First Robotics. I was just wondering if there was anything else out there.

comment Organizations that encourage kids to program
I do encourage programming for my own son, but I was wondering if there were any that encouraged programming for kids who don't have programmers for parents. (I'll add that to the question.)
