The expression "The child is the father of man" has been picked from the poem "The rainbow" by William Wordsworth. It states that a child makes himself known by his actions whether his deeds are pure or impure further it reveals that a person carries all those traits, mentality and attributes whether positive or negative which he was used to express in his childhood. If one observes the children playing. They exhibit certain characteristics which last with them forever and impart a great role in their character building and career choice.

Having a look at history, it is followed by several examples which support this phenomenon. One of such people is Napoleon who was a great military commander and fond of playing fight games in his childhood and later on he proved himself as a great military genius. It shows that his childhood attributes accompanied him throughout his life and he chose the profession for which he had enthusiasm in his early age. Secondly Albert Einstein who was the most influential physicist of 20th century and winner of noble prize in physics had a great interest in mathematics and physics in his childhood and were in the habit of making modules and mechanical devices for fun. This became part of his personality and later on when he grew up, emerged as the great scientist on the face of world. Childhood attributes remain with the person even he grows old. Watching the behavior of children we can presume easily what he would be in his future life.
