Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
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.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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]
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Children are poor men's riches.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
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.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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 are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
