    Dec 4 2011: I think with the kids of today the most important thing is to give them a chance to learn on their own. There is no teaching skills that is better than learning from experience. A TV salesperson will never use the television to its full potential or capacity as compared to the person who buys it. Kids need the freedom to play with things, figure it out and you will see how exceptional those kids will develop human skills. Humans have evolved and technology is trippling the pace of our mind's progress in thinking and doing thing, similarly kids born in this information age should not be narrowed down but what we think they should learn rather they should discover the world around them.
