You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
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.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
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.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
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.
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.

A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
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.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

Lois McMaster Bujold
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. 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.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
