comment When do you start documenting the code?
design document +1. It helps to have a nice over view of how you were expecting the system to develop. Even if it is different

comment My Dad is impatient with the pace of my learning to program. What do I do?
keep programming, don't let some one make programming less fun. Remember you are doing it for your self not for them. I had to buy my own books to get started, and it does take time. So keep at it.

@mpumi How to problem solve, don't think about every thing in one go. Break down the problem into parts that you know you can do. Do those parts. Take the poker game. Start by getting a program that just brings up the window. then the window with a single card. Then every Every time you click on the card it changes. Next try and get it to display two cards. Don't try and write the whole program the first time you sit down. Set you self a small goal. Like change the back ground colour of the window and that and check it. The get it to change the back ground colour when you click on it.
