How to help someone learn

Being overly protective doesn’t help someone learn.

Neither does pushing someone into the deep end with a rock tied to their foot.

If you never give them enough of a challenge, they’re learning in a false environment.

If you set the bar too high, they won’t reach it and you’ll destroy their motivation.

Helping someone learn means that you challenge them to think for themselves, even when it’s hard, but you also make sure that they can succeed.
