Rearing A Child - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

Every child we want to prosper,
But must have time to grow.
Each one must learn to weather
Life's trials and tribulations even more.

Give the child time to mature - through hardships-
Strength to combat distress,
Let the warmth of each parent,
Bathe it in caress.

Do not rush the rearing stage,
For a child to bear,
Let it slowly grow and mature,
Guide its development with tender care.

A sound mind and a sound body
will ripen to their best
If they are permitted to develop
Without being overly pressed.
