Abstract

The essence of what I wish to say is eloquently and simply contained in the words of Kahil Gibran, when in his work entitled “The Prophet” he speaks of children:-

“Your children are not your children

They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself

They come through you but not from you

And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
