Best Quotes about Children
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
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.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
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.
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

Lois McMaster Bujold
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.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
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.
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. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.

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.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.

A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Children are poor men's riches.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
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.

Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
