Every child should have a caring adult in their lives…

“Every child should have a caring adult in their lives. And that’s not always a biological parent or family member. It may be a friend or neighbor. Often times it is a teacher.”

Joe Manchin

Today I came across two videos created in different parts of the world that reflect this point so well. The first one is a very touching commercial by the Ministry of Education of Singapore:

The second video was created in USA. It tells about the Year Up programme – a one-year intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24,  with the skills, experience, and support that will empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education:

What about you? Who was that special adult (or adults) in your life?

    Fantastic post … and I love the videos – I think it’s down to parent to give their children freedom under responsibility – so they can take responsibility for their own life – make sure they get a good platform to stand on – to make their dreams come true. So true that a good teacher can make such a difference to a child’s life – that happen to me … a great teacher he got my devoted attention, Mr Larsson.
