Discussion on: Sit down and figure it out

I have started using a new technique when it comes to helping teach younger devs. Whenever they can't figure something out, rather than explain it to them, I ask questions in a way that will lead them to the right answer. It takes longer to do and sometimes they get frustrated, but the look on their face when they figure it out on their own is priceless! Makes it all worth it. I have found the more you struggle, the more you learn.

Always helps to ask question as opposed to giving answers. Both teacher and student must have patience when using this method!
