How to help young learners grow?

How to help young learners grow? 

👉First of all: be ready much before the newborns are born. Then continue to always stay _readier_ as they grow and learn more. If you're not ready for science how do you think you'll be able to help them?
👉Second: Show them how to ask and answer tough questions about everything from earliest on in life.
👉Third: Help with learning where inspiration must always come from and how. Remember that no matter what we've done as a species, nature did it first. Nature still does—& will always do—it much better & we will forever have to learn from it. 
👉Fourth: Help them recognize their strengths _and_ limitations, and why we as a species can only do great things in teams, even if those are most often asynchronous.
👉Fifth: Understand well what is a school system and what does it, can it, and should it do. Brief: any school system is designed for _scale_. Any individual is unique. Don't ever allow the need to societally learn at scale to kill or even just mildly reduce each one learner's (your each and every kid's) individuality. Then set to prepare your children for it. From day one. Every day. For life. And no: your fancy gaming/video tablet or smartphone is not your co-parent or babysitter. It's just a brain killer if not used correctly. Schooling shall _complement_ and amplify learning from home and from life experiences themselves. Never just replace those. 
👉Sixth: Help everyone travel. As far and as wide as you can imagine. Also as deep and as narrow as you can imagine. And beyond. With the mind, and certainly with the body too, but not just with the body. Learn from there. You and your young learners will never be the same. 
👉Seventh: Always live tomorrow, never yesterday. Yesteryear & yestercentury are good for learning from them, but to relive them would really be the dumbest. Never trust anyone taking you back to some past. Realize how much they're misleading you and just call their bluff.
👉Eight: Understand the system you and your family live in. Understand it well. This is fundamental. Even language can not help you fully unless you're ready to question it—language itself—as well. Remember all the blind people👨‍🦯👩‍🦯🧑‍🦯explaining an elephant 🐘. Before you ever looked from above 🌗 how would you describe the world 🌍? Before you can describe it well how can you explain things it's impacted by? Then when some people try to mess with your understanding 🧠for their own benefit, how can you react if you didn't dedicate enough time and effort to figure out how they may want to trick you? Imagine then that you're there for your children all while you yourself may be tricked away from being able to represent their entire interests well enough… Take a simple issue: 🧓🛻👧🏫🅿️🅿️🅿️🅿️🚫🌳. What do we do about it? Only what we know we may… But what if we never learned we may do anything at all? Because we were prohibited subliminally from getting the entirety of the system?

👉Many will rob you with a pen.
