Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
Be gentle with the young.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.

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. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
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.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

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.
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.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children need models rather than critics.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience.
