What kind of legacy are we leaving our children, grandchildren and future generations? Have you even thought about that?
We know children go through stages of physical development progressing from totally dependence on adults as newborns to being fully independent as adults. We also recognize that a child develops mentally, emotionally, and socially as they grow and experience the world around them. The spiritual and moral development of children is equally complex. Just because a child says that it is not appropriate to hit a playmate or that one should always tell the truth does not mean that their behavior will follow.
