“Every adult needs a child to teach—it’s the way adults learn”

"Every adult needs a child to teach—it’s the way adults learn” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Every adult needs a child to teach—it’s the way adults learn” was printed in “The Country Parson,” a one-panel comic strip by Frank A. Clark (1911-1991), in many newspapers on November 23, 1974.


Wikipedia: The Country Parson
Country Parson, a series of one-panel syndicated newspaper cartoons, always featuring a short aphorism or observation (modeled in part on the original anonymous Country Parsons’ writings), created and written by Frank A. Clark (1911–1991) of Iowa, illustrated by Wally Clark and later Dennis Neal, running from the late 1950s through the 1970s.

23 November 1974, Sentinel Star (Orlando, FL), “The Country Parson” one-panel comic strip by Frank A. Clark, pg. 22-A, col. 6:
Every adult needs a child to teach—it’s the way adults learn.—The Country Parson.
