The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
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.

Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.

Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
