In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.

It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.

Jones, Franklin P.
