"There are a host of children who can use the mature guidance of an adult
who really cares about their mental and physical development.
In many cases, these children may not have suitable role models
and simply by showing, or behaving in appropriate ways over time,
they will learn what it means to act the same way."

his worth as a learner. Those attitudes will accompany him all the way
through school and into adulthood."

"We can measure many things, but the time that families and
communities invest in children is invaluable. Giving kids a sense of fitting in,
of feeling good about themselves, and giving them the opportunities to
succeed and fail will really prepare kids of life ahead."
