Every line was kind of the same... it went like this...

If you teach a child...____________ He will learn....__________

(example if you teach a child justice, he will learn to be fair)

have not the one you are looking for (yet) but a similar idea can be found on a company website here;

If a child grows up in an environment of criticism, the child will learn to criticize.
If a child grows up in an environment of hate, the child will learn to fight.
If a child grows up in an environment of shame, the child will learn to feel guilty
If a child grows up in a praising environment, the child will learn to appreciate.
If a child grows up in an encouraging environment, the child will learn to be confident.
If a child grows up in an environment of understanding, the child will learn to be patient.
If a child grows up in a just environment, the child will learn to be fair.
If a child grows up in a secure environment, the child will learn to trust.
If a child grows up in an approving environment, the child will develop self-esteem.
If a child grows up in an environment of acceptance and friendship, the child will learn to find love in people.

Hey, let's fill in the blanks with our own ideas.
I'll say, if you teach a child good habits he'll learn to make good choices.

If you teach a child to sing, he will fill the world with joy.

If you teach your child to be submissive then he will grow like an alien.

Hello I have visited this forum every now and then for about two years to look to see if you ever received an answer. Tell me - did you ever find that poem? I too have seen it and now have a little boy and would love to have it myself. I wish my Mother had had a copy!

Sincerely, Bronwyn

Hi - I'm a Bronwyn too!
This is my first visit. I was googling looking for this and came across your conversation, so I found it and thought I'd share it with you:
I remember it from years ago. - Cheers Bron :D

CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE
If a child lives with criticism,
He learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
He learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule,
He learns to be shy.
If a child lives with jealousy,
He learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance,
He learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement,
He learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with praise,
He learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness,
He learns justice.
If a child lives with security,
He learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval,
He learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship,
He learns to find life in the world.
