They Are All Our Children
January 2, 2019
What people say, what people do, and what they say they do are entirely different things.
-Margaret Mead

Lillian Katz, writing in the book Developing People (part of the Art of Leadership series), outlines fourteen points she believes will be helpful for early childhood teachers. Here’s the final point in her list:

“I really believe that each of us must come to care about everyone else’s children. We must come to see that the welfare of our children and grandchildren is intimately linked to the welfare of all other people’s children. After all, when one of our children needs life-changing surgery, someone else’s child will perform it. If one of our children is threatened or harmed by violence, someone else’s child will be responsible for the violent act. The good life for our own children can only be secured if a good life is also secured for all other people’s children. Where are other people’s children right now? Are they having wholesome, caring, and appropriate experiences? The person who will be our president 60 years from now may be in someone’s three-year-old class today. I hope she’s having a good experience! To be concerned about other people’s children is not just a practical matter — it is a moral and ethical one.”
