Hi Tiffany,
This kind of questions are not for the docs mailing list :)

Anyway, I can help you: if you are having problems with the IDLE you can
use the Atom Editor <https://atom.io/> or an IDE like Pycharm Community
Edition <https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/>.

Python is the best language to start learning about programming so you have
a lot of resources online to (just Google it):

   - Python Course at Code Academy
   - Python Documentation <https://docs.python.org/3/>
   - Youtube <https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=python>

I recommend you using Python 3.x instead of 2.x due a lot of improvements.

Good luck and may the force be with you.
