Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.

Dobson, Dr. James C.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.

Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
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
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
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
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Be gentle with the young.
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.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Never have children, only grandchildren.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.

Angier, Bradford Arthur
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
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.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
