“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” (or women)
Invest in children’s growth; they are the foundation of a better future.
Frederick Douglass, a former slave and an influential leader in the abolitionist movement, understood the importance of investing in children’s development. His quote emphasizes that the wellbeing and education of children is not just a personal issue, but one of societal importance. By providing a strong foundation in childhood – through love, support, education, and guidance – we can help shape individuals who are well-equipped to face life’s challenges. This proactive approach in childhood can prevent many of the difficulties that might require remediation in adulthood.
