I'd encourage it as it was encouraged to me.

I was fortunate to have a cousin with a computer repair shop when I was growing up, so I had a lot of hardware available for me to play around with! This shaped up my world, literally, and it helped me uncover my passion for computers in general.

So if I ever have kids, I'll definitely try to nudge them in the direction, but also make sure that they're able to check other hobbies/career paths out, to make sure that in the end, they do what they love to do, as that's the most important thing.
