[fpc-pascal] Need Advice: Teaching a Child Programming

I need some advice from you guys.

I might soon be teaching a child about computer programming and am
considering using Free Pascal as the first language. The problem is the
child is a distance away from me and I want a way to see his code as he
types and help him along by moving his cursor and sending him snippets or
correcting his code while he watches, all done remotely along with two way
voice chat.

I need some sort of tool to help with this. I could simply use Skype and
set him up to allow me to occasionally take control remotely, but I am
wondering if there might be a better way?

What do you people think?

I was considering writing a small cross platform desktop text editor type
application that would forward to me the text and cursor location as he
types, and allow me to change his text and highlight text and move the
cursor. That wouldn't be very difficult, but I would need a separate
program for VOIP, and I also might want syntax highlighting, code
completion drop downs, compile functions.

Again, do you people have any suggestions?
