What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Best Quotes about Children
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
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
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.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
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]
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
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 keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Never have children, only grandchildren.
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.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
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
Children need models rather than critics.
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.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
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.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
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.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
