Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors.

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
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

Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

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.
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.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.

Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.

Kennedy, John F.
