For the experienced, launching anything new will not entail the negative factors mentioned above as they have the conventional wit, ‘once bitten-twice shy’. Pragmatism guides them and helps to be cautious. However, children are exposed to a totally strange unacquainted world around from their inception or natal stage. Innocent, nascent, curious, unpretentious they will be. But the older ones who nurture them generously share their tastes in life imparting essential wisdom for their growth. In the process, not-so-pleasant consequences when doing certain things or acting in particular manner is also taught, lest the kids skid the way the grownups did at some time in life.

Here and there, there will be sobs and wailing but usually that is as they start. Once got used to, the shy and the timid adapt smartly much to the amazement of the adults especially, parents. Weaning form the toddler phase and inducting into the next growth level i.e. post infancy is the name of the game. Many a child would cherish these nascent experiences of education for a long time in life and even the bonding with peers and teachers. The future of a precious child depends on the seeds sown in a fertile ground of initial learning.
