When to help

A kind of #TIL.

Today when browsing DayNhauHoc (I was finding some good channels to promote my blog), I found some young students feeling desperate losing their way.

I then asked on vietnamrb for a way to help them improve; yet unexpectedly, I was given a lesson.

There are two types of student. Students who can improve, and students who can’t. Helping the second group will be a waste of time for both sides.

I was out of words for a while, indeed to help without knowing how-to is unconstructive and waste of time. Kinda like a Vietnamese saying “Nhiệt tình + Ngu dốt = Phá hoại” (enthusiasm + stupidity = destruction).

Not sure why the American intervention in Vietnam war was flashing into my mind at that moment.
