How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.

Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
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.
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.

Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
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.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
