You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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.
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
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
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.

Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Adults are obsolete children.
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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.
Children always turn to the light.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.

There is no sinner like a young saint.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.

Howe, Edgar Watson
The wildest colts make the best horses.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
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.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
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.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
