Best Quotes about Children
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
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.

Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Children are poor men's riches.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
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.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Never have children, only grand children.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
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.
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.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
