Best Quotes about Children
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
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.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
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.
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.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Be gentle with the young.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
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.
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.
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.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham
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.
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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Adults are obsolete children.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
