the child is father of man

The line which occur in poem by wordsworth means that the qualities shown by the child are indicative of the kind of man he will be when he grow up. There are many example to prove that the quality found in a grown up man may be found in germ in the child. Lives of Michael angelo, titian, shivaji prove the truth of the proverb. But there are exceptions. Children who had shown great promise sometimes turn out to be failure as adults. Conversely some who were ordinary or even dull as children grow up to be great people. Generally however the child shows what the man will be. since it generally true that man grows up to be what he is a child, there is a need training children the right way.
