Best Quotes about Children
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
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.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
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.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
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.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
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.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
