Experience is the key and the learned man knows that we have to learn from each and every experience in the real life. To spread learning awareness, make a point to ask a question about what are you leraning everyday. With this question the kid will get the habit to think in that manner that they have to share their learning and with that they will focus on leraning and grasping things in every moment of life.

Obersvation is the habit which should be developed right from childhood. A good observer is very good learner and understands the world bettter. The art of good observation is the attribute of a educated human being. With observation we get insights of the various facts and we start learning from observation. Much of the facts in life can only be learned through observations and not tecahings or books. Many great innovators are good observers first. Even scientists identify the problem with observation.
