A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
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.

You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

Jones, Franklin P.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
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.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.

Auden, W. H.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.

Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

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.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

Smith, Logan Pearsall

Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
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.
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.
