Best Quotes about Children
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Children are poor men's riches.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children always turn to the light.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The wildest colts make the best horses.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. 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.
