Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
~ Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)
We all remember what it was like to be a child. The small things mattered so much more. Every trial was devastating; every joy was exhilarating. A look or a word could make an impression on us for life.
Even for an adult, feeling prepared and equal to our peers can change the outcome of a day. For a child at school, it can change their entire future.
