ONE IN EVERY THREE PEOPLE in the world is a child. In middle and low income countries this rises to nearly one in every two people. This issue provides an important reminder of how often the potential of young people is ignored – to our cost.

If children live with criticism they learn to condemn
If children live with hostility they learn to fight
If children live with ridicule they learn to be shy
If children live with shame they learn to feel guilty
If children live with tolerance they learn to be patient
If children live with encouragement they learn confidence
If children live with praise they learn to appreciate
If children live with fairness they learn justice
If children live with security they learn to have faith
If children live with approval they learn to like themselves
If children live with acceptance and friendship they learn to find love in the world
