he learns to be patient.

 

If a child lives with encouragement,

 

he learns confidence.

 

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,

 

he learns to have faith.

he learns to like himself.

he learns to find love in the world.
