A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

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.
Swift, Jonathan

Children need models rather than critics.

Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

14.
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.

Holmes, Oliver Wendell

30.
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.
Jordan, June

31.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.

Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

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.
Ruskin, John

38.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

39.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

40.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

Freud, Sigmund

42.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
