Yes, therefore start with simple procedural (console)
programs that let them have immediate success with
all the elementary things that a program consists of
(variables/types, loops, commands, etc.).
If that is understood you can switch to GUI applications.

If you do it the other way round you only delay the date
of frustration but you do not avoid it.
