I agree I've been in a similar situation. More often than not, I've caused this situation to arise. But there's a big difference between telling someone "They shouldn't be in this profession" v/s "Here's how you can do better in this profession".

We aren't living in a world of unicorns and we should find better ways to imparting this knowledge. Everyone stumbles when they learn to walk. Imagine if your parent told you that you weren't cut out to walk instead of helping you improve your gait and make your legs stronger.

It's already too late to tell someone who's messing with a real project "You shouldn't be in this profession". I wish, but I'm realist. That's why I've added number to my advice - #0 (see my first comment, I have no idea why it starts with "1.", in the editor I see "0.". Some bug, probably.). I just want to prevent appearing of new "stackoverflow-developers".

And if we are playing in crazy comparisons, imagine the doctor, that keep failing in diagnosis, but keeps trying because keep hearing, how he/she can become better in his profession.

That's literally how Med School works. :)

School - maybe, but not a hospital. Such a doctor would be fired in a blick.
