Best Quotes about Children
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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 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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
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.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Be gentle with the young.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
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.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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
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.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
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.
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.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
