code academy is a great way to get started. http://www.codecademy.com/


The lessons are easy to follow well written and structured. They explain things well and have good user forums you can use for help and advice. They have lessons using javascript, php, jquery, python and ruby. And they use fun example programs, little games, things like that.


Now you might think you dont want to learn web programming, but the fundemental principles of programming are the same no matter what language you use, so the things you learn here will serve you well for any language you decide to move on to. And it doesnt take too long to pick up basic programming skills using the code academy lessons.


I'm letting My daughter use the lessons there and she's creating little javascript games of her own (she's 10) simple little text games at the moment but it is great how quickly the lessons have brought her to that point and would highly recommend them to anyone as they are suitable for budding programmers of any age.


Also you might want to check out the coder dojo website (http://coderdojo.com/)  to see if there is one in your local area you could check out. these are great places to meet other people wanting to learn programming and pick up tips, tricks and lessons. They aren't everywhere yet, but they are popping up all over the world and are good places to learn as well.
