A child is the most precious gifts a person could ever be given. They are the investment that has guaranteed dividends and your yield will be determined by what you are willing to pour into them. Whether you're parenting, mentoring or involved in child care of any kind, know that your words and actions have the potential to impact a child for many years to come. Because they are unique individuals, it is important that you become deliberate in your interactions with them. Teach them on purpose. Correct them with a lesson attached and love them out loud. Do your best to get it right the first time because there aren't many chances for do-overs. You may get a variety of responses but always know that children, of all ages, like knowing that someone cares about them enough to spend time with them. If they need something that you are not equipped to provide, make sure that you find someone who has what they need. Caring for a child is the greatest thing you will ever do, put your best foot forward.
