Whitney Houston said it best, "I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way, show them all the beauty they possess inside." As adults, we realize that the future lies in the hands of children. When children are young, they do what they see. We as adults or parents have to influence children to be the best they can be. We have to teach them to be kind and responsible. The first step to this is education. Children seek to learn and to be better. As they grow up, you'll hear them say, "I want to be a doctor or a lawyer," but we have to let them know they have to get an education, put in the work, and want to learn. Many people play a different part in a child's future such as a teacher, role model, or parent. Children are our most valuable resource. What we give them today shapes our tomorrow.
