14 Thank you for attending the DF Walker Parent Hornet Café ***** It takes a village to raise a child. ****** It means that a child does not just grow up within a home, where there may be a single parent or a combination of parents, but a child will grow up in a community, a village, and that a child will not grow up just in a home but in a social world with input and understanding from the village. Regardless of the child’s upbringing, the child belongs to and is shaped by the community.
