Best Quotes about Children
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.

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.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
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

There is no sinner like a young saint.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.

Curie, Madame Marie
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.

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
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
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.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.

Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
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.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
