Certain bees look for nectar while others build "cells" or rooms. Others care for the young and the Queen. Humans have the same system. We each do our own part to make the "world go round." Some people are bankers others are farmers. The farmers make our food and bring it to us. While the day-care workers take care of our young. Without everyone doing their part we could not survive. Children depend on their parents to bring home food for them. Parents work to provide for their children.
