Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
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
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.

A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.

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
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
