    I believe that if you start teaching kids at a very early age when they're always interested about everything and they ask thousands of questions about why this and why that, they can pretty much learn anything by the time they grow up. It's really amazing the way children learn. :)

    Yep bro! I started doing IM, programming from early age and I can say it helped me to think a little different. It's interesting when this boy started programming :?

    Wow, that's pretty amazing. If you truly have interest on something and decide to learn it at a young age than you will become a master in that interest.

    Yes, when you are a kid , your mind is like a sponge and gathers almost everything from the environment, whether it's good or bad. It has to be said, this young man has very promissing future in big part thanks his parents, which seem both to be well educated and caring so they are a good supporters for him. Another thing is individual education which allows him to expand his interests to the fullest extent. There are thousands of people like Santiago, who didn't have the opportunity to extend their talents because of traditional education and lack of interest from parents plus financial problems. Yeah, Santiago is a lucky guy for sure and I wish him the best.

    Well done that family. Let a kid connect with their passion and anything is possible

    Our 3 year old is tril-lingual and amazes us. No hot housing on our part - completely learned through conversation. Her English is well beyond her years.

    Look at Sir Ken Robinsons vids on TED if you want a great critique of our factory farming methods for kids.
