Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
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.
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.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.

Cottle, Thomas J.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
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.

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.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

Holmes, Oliver Wendell
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
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.

King Edward VIII
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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
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.

Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
