Chinuch and Archery a la Kotzk

I heard in the name of the Kotzker Rebbe that "KeChitzim BaYad Gibor Ken Bnei haNeurim" (Tehillim 127:4) - Like arrows in the hand of a mighty archer, so are the children in youth.
What is the connection between arrows and children?
Just as when an archer holds his bow closer to his heart, the farther and straighter the arrow flies. So too with raising children the closer we hold them to our heart the farther and straighter they go.
