Child care in various phases of their growth and Parent's responsibility

As per Indian ancient Tradition, a child up to five years should be treated as God, and from five to ten it should be treated as servant and after sixteen we should treat him/her as a friend. See the below sloka (verse) from 'Neeti Sastra':

"Bhagavatpancha varshani, dasa varshani daasavath,
Praptetu shodase varshe, putram mitra vada chareth."
