As adults we all play an important role in giving children a voice and guiding them through life. This short video is impactful and really illustrates how adult words and interactions can lift a child to excel or clip their wings and stifle their potential.
There is an old African proverb that says “It takes a village to raise a child.” Whether you are a caregiver, educator, school personnel, parent, family friend, or neighbor- we are all apart of the village. Take a moment to assess how you speak and interact with the children you encounter. Let’s all do our best to ensure that we are inspiring and encouraging our future leaders of the world!
