When it will be too late for many.  If indeed it is better to use the
keyboard (and I think it is), it seems a bad idea to begin by teaching
bad habits, however easy these habits may be.

I too think that the keyboard is better, but in my mind is right now a
song with an awful text:

"If you want to teach them they can't learn then make sure they have to
learn a lot of details at once."

I am sure someone has some better text for this! ;-)

Is that an actual song?  I like it.  What is the name of it?  I'm sure
most people agree with the sentiment, too.
Unfortunately it is not a real song ;-)

But what little at a time is being taught, should be taught correctly. If the consensus is that using the mouse is the right way, fine; but I
disagree with the idea of letting bad habits form and overcoming them
Yes, but the thing is that if they can use their old habits for a while they can learn much, much faster.
