If a child lives with praise
He learns to appreciate

If a child lives with fairness
He learns justice

If a child lives with security

If a child lives with approval
He learns to like himself

If a child lives with honesty
He learns to be truthful

If a child lives with lies and deceit
He too learns how to lie and deceive
