Best Quotes about Children
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
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.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Children need models rather than critics.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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 begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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.
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.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
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.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
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.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
