Best Quotes about Children
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.

Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

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.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
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.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
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.

Hoover, Herbert Clark
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
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.
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.

The child is the father of the man.
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.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Adults are obsolete children.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
