The Child Is Father Of The Man

​"The child is father of the man" is a line taken from William Wordsworth's short poem 'Rainbow'. He writes of his childhood fascination for rainbows,which stays with him in his adult life. Habits formed in childhood continue into adulthood. What the child is, the man will become, is the poet's refrain. So, forming the right habits in children is a huge responsibility for parents. This blog is an attempt to share with you over four decades of parenting experience - warts and all - and the insights gained through lapses, repentance and reform.
