A child who steals a needle will grow up to steal gold.

解释 ( paraphrase )
小的时候偷了别人的针,长大以后就有可能去偷别人的金钱。
这条谚语告诉我们:对孩子小时候的坏习惯,比如小偷小摸要引起重视,抓紧教育,否则将来就可能发展成为犯罪行为。

This proverb directs our attention to the importance of correcting the bad habits of children, not matter how trivial. Otherwise, the bad habits may develop into serious criminal behavior. By then it will be too late.

造句 ( example )
奶奶常常教育我们:“小孩子要听话,偷拿了东西要诚实,不然小时偷针,大时偷金啊!”
