The topic meant that when a person reaches of his age, i mean gets old, then he starts behaving like a child. Thus it is said Child is the Father of Man.

It should actually be said Father is the child of men. Anyhow, its a very popular urrmmm sort of maxim.

All the Best~

Its said by William Wordsworth in one of his famous ODE TO IMMORTALITY
that "child is the father of man" where he meant that during childhood a child is closer to God and nature ,he is pure ,because he has not been corrupted by the malicious forces of the world and as he grows he is changing and getting lost in the wordly affairs like every other man so a child is a fther of man in terms of being close to God as its not been very long that he came to this material world

Default Philosophical verse told by William Wordsworth

It was told by him and the philosophy behind it was:
One can predict the future of men from one's childhood. If you analyze it, you will find that child is used as a noun like "Childhood". It means:
Childhood is the father of man.

Default The child is father of the man

It's a stanza from a poem by William Wordsworth:
MY heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began,
So is it now I am a man,
So be it when I shall grow old
Or let me die!
The child is father of the man:
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety

This could be expanded in many dimensions. For instance:
This expression means that our psychology established during childhood, all our positive and negative traits are established when we are young. Traits and habits acquired during childhood remains with us lifetime. In this way, childhood got precedence our manhood and child leads the man in later life.

Another dimension:
Once Abraham Lincoln said:
"A child is a person who is going to carry on what you have started. He is going to sit where you are sitting, and when you are gone, attend to those things which you think are important. You may adopt all the policies you please, but how they are carried out depends on him. He will assume control of your cities, states and nations. He is going to move in and take over your churches, schools, universities, and corporations. All your books are going to be judged, praised or condemned by him. The fate of humanity is in his hands."

In this way, a child as judge of man's action may be termed as "The child is father of the man".

Meaning of this proverb is:


It is the spontaneously unselfish love of the small child which makes the transition to full adulthood possible. Of course, this love does often tend to be overshadowed for a time by the almost too rapid growth of the competitively-trained adolescent intellect, and this unbalance of mind and heart surely accounts for a great many of the pains of adolescence. Yet to the degree that we guide our actions by our earliest, grandly unselfish, outward-reaching love -- now immensely strengthened and broadened by our knowledge and experience -- by so much does the true adult come to birth within us.
I believe in this lies the inner meaning of the old saying that the child is the father of the man

in urdu it is priverb "honehar bervay ky chikney chikney pat' means habit, attitude and inclination ,mentality of child shows how he will be in youth .so in my interpretation child is father of man means in childhood we can guess what abilities he will have as a man.it is my own thought so may be wrong.

Every generation is advanced than the ancestral one so the technology adaptation in next generations is found more than oldies.

Default Child is the father of man...

It is important to GET the meanings of the various terms,that is father,child and men in somewhat different relationship.At the same time,we have to,for the time being,forget about the status of child and father to each other as we have in this physical world.
Child overhere mean experience,mistake and learning from mistakes.Father mean telling you the right things,making you to learn through experience.Man can be called is one who is comparatively well learned.Now what this maxim well mean is that it is childhood which ultimately makes a perfect man.So,it is in this sense that child is the father of man.
