Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.

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.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Where children are, there is the golden age.
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.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
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.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
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 often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.

Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
