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 need models rather than critics.

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.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience.

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.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
