In an article in Focus Magazine Bill Gates asked "How can you make learning attractive?"
    To learn, one (anyone – student, businessman, homemaker, etc.) must desire to learn.
    We are impelled by curiosity. Some pursue their curiosities, but in others this interest withers. Why? Attitude. Lack of discipline.
    Once one believes answers can be found to questions he's curious about, he's interested in learning more about it.
    Once present knowledge satisfies curiosity, a person taught to think by asking questions, will seek deeper secrets. That is, knowledge seen in a new light provides incentive for development of unique ideas.
    Why does one want to learn, if not to improve self and others or to make something better in some way? People caring about themselves and others seek for better ways.
    Believing answers can be found is impelling toward a pursuit of knowledge.
    The more one learns about something, the more it becomes a part of him, and the more important it becomes as this happens.
    For those believing that they can't make a difference, the pursuit of knowledge is something infringing upon their own selfish purposeless time wasting leanings toward excess, TV, the bar scene, sexual titillation, laziness, etc. In short, they just don't see themselves making a difference, so they might as well devote time to making the self happy and comfortable, and let everyone else worry about the rest. They limit their capabilities by excluding involvement in disciplines presenting potential for quality consequences. Many have not been taught to make a decision and stick with it.
    About vision:-Being taught early to both perceive and be disciplined for doing what's loved, is good. This as opposed to reveling over immediate concerns for satisfaction. Such is the discipline that leads to vision  -Proverbs 25:28 "He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls." Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no vision, the people perish...."
    A pet can help a child to learn the giving and receiving of love, but birds can be a health hazard.

Parental responsibility is enormous. Encourage a child to learn and he'll learn! No. Not in a week. Over the coming years. It takes much quality time to be thoroughly involved with all that your children are and will become. And how do you do this with both parents working more than 6 hours a day, 4 days a week. Most people are in forced servitude to their jobs; that is, they must work to survive. In this fast paced world most can only earn enough to live to earn enough to live another day. Work and driving to it requires far too much time. The work week has made many the working weak.
    A 6 hour work day, 3 or 4 days a week should provide more than enough money to well support a family of 4 or 5, including money for interesting pursuits, holidays, etc. It takes time and dedication to develop and for maintenance of quality individuals; i.e., volunteer work, etc. Unlike governments today that devise legal means to deprive people of substance, God's government will ensure people own their own property safe of authoritarian greed, and with no fear of their earned substance being depleted. The government of God on this Earth will be like that
    To produce quality children, parents need time to acquire knowledge. 
    Encouragement towards children is by example. Most parents neglect sharing wonderful tidbits of knowledge with their children. Are the parents excited about new things learned, excited to share with their kids what they've learned? What did you as a parent learn today that could be shared with your children?


It's important to teach and encourage children to learn and think about what they know, because emotion follows thought. Psychologist Adrian Raine of USC, in a research study utilizing magnetic resonance imaging found that deceitful, violent, antisocial men have a reduced amount of gray matter in the brain's prefrontal cortex. Not that they were born that way, but negative decisions lead to more negative decisions, till lack of hope allows the spirit to be sapped of vitality.-...continues to Questions
