There are many important reasons to why society needs to place more emphasis on safeguarding and educating our children. Children rely on adults for warmth, food, housing, primary socialization, safety. More than that, how we treat today's children will have a lasting effect on the character of tomorrow's leaders, business people, and policy makers. If human kind hopes for a positive future, they will have to provide a healthy environment for today's children. James Aldrich understands this need well. As CEO of Children's Hope Residential Services, he recognizes that, although children are incredibly resilient, they are sponges soaking up information and cues from their environment.
