I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.

Cottle, Thomas J.

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.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.

The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
