Getting started

Hi all – new to the site, so forgive if this is a really basic question.

My two kids just caught the bug to program Flash games (thanks to this site – thanks Jim!). They downloaded GameMaker and are at it non-stop.

My question is, can you suggest way(s) to get them started in Flash? What software do I need to buy, what books or tutorials, etc.

As backgrounder, they are 12 and 14, and I graduated with a now completely rusted computer science degree.

Thanks in advance!
