There is an essential relational component to unleashing the potential within a child. No child can truly thrive without the presence of healthy relationships of all different ages and stages. Friendship, mentorship, people who act as parents and grandparents for that child, all serve an essential role in the healthy formation of a child. Children move from isolation to restoration through an intentional process of building healthy relationships. As a child grows and develops this is an essential part of the maturity process.
