The only true education of a child is attained when it is driven to meet contexts and face challenges; The child is taught to react to real life situations and it learns by trial and error before it is too long or late. It is forced to shed inhibitions and open up its mind for the ups and downs of life, which are going to be essential features of a man’s life later. Thus there is no match to experience as the best teacher in a child's life.
