Children learn what they live and live what they learn. Inspire values in your child by example. Showing – not just telling – instils positive, true values in children that they will carry with them throughout their lives.

Your parenting wisdom will draw out your child’s immense inner resources. That’s the message in this classic poem by Dorothy Law Nolte (a parent educator, family counselor and pioneer in the field of positive child development), first published in 1954, which still holds true today.
