“Child is the father of the man” is an element of a poem “My Heart Leaps Up” by the poet William Wordsworth, he had a great faith in nature. The purpose of the proverb is to establish a connection between nature and humanity. What does this proverb really mean?  


Every adult was once a child. No matter how old a person is there will always be a child that lies deep within them. Sometimes the adults cage their inner child, their trauma of being rejected by the society makes this inner child a distant memory. William Wordsworth also said that if this childishness disappears, it is very unfortunate and one must better die. I believe so because your life gets filled with despondency and desolation. 

The values of love, kindness, respect, punctuality must be taught to children as it will be carried till the last breath of the individual. A person learns the most when they are children, as that is the time their personalities are shaped and they are open to learning. The child requires a healthy environment to grow up, if they see quarrels while growing up they will grow up to become violent and rebellious. A person carries what they learn in their childhood to adulthood. 


One must remain a child by heart no matter how mature they become. The poet further states that as a grown up man, no life’s pressure or hard work could stop him from enjoying the nature and the little things which he used to enjoy as a child. The nature he displayed as an adult adopted by him in his childhood itself. 

Thanks for reading and have a great day ..
