Best Quotes about Children
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.

Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
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
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.

Johnson, Lady Bird
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

John J. Plomp

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.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
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]
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.

What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Children are all foreigners.
