A Recipe For Developing Food Allergy. Wet wipes could lead to babies developing potentially fatal…
Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them.
The greatest gift you can give a child is time.
Children do not expose their true feelings to an adult from the age of eight or nine onwards.
Grown-ups are no fun.
They never have time to do things with you.
If I could change grown-ups I would make them do nothing but play with you.
But everyone knows that you can’t do that.
Children are notoriously curious about everything.
Everything except the things people want them to know.
It then remains for us to refrain from forcing any kind of knowledge upon them, and they will be curious about everything.
No matter how old she may be, sometimes a girl just needs her Dad.
Childhood is the world of miracle and wonder.
As if creation rose, bathed in light, out of the darkness, utterly new and fresh and astonishing.
The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us.
When the world seems familiar, when one has got used to existence, one has become an adult.
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.
Looking back on my own childhood, I do not believe that I ever felt love for any mature person, except my mother, but shyness made me conceal most of my real feelings from her.
Give your children little things and not expensive toys.
Teach them to appreciate small gifts and simple joys.
My mother made me go to bed when I was wide awake.
And made me get up when I was still half asleep.
All mothers give birth to a child.
Except my mother.
She gave birth to a legend.
Children do not know how their parents love them.
And they never will till they have children of their own.
I’ve always been aware of the way I look because my mother was always telling me I was lovely.
A child tells in the street what mother and father say at home.
Children follow examples, not advice.
If you want your children to listen, try talking softly to someone else.
Our children are gifts from God, given lovingly.
He entrusts them to our care because he knows we will let them play in his sunshine, help them learn through his guidance, and teach them faith in his love.
He knows if we bring them up in his care, they will always walk in his blessed and wonderful ways.
You know you’ve lost control of your kids when they stop asking where they came from and refuse to tell you where they’re going.
Our children are God’s gifts to us.
Though they move out of our homes, they will never grow out of the garden of our hearts.
If you want your children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others.
What Does School Really Teach Children?..
Truth comes from authority.
Intelligence is the ability to remember and repeat.
Accurate memory and repetition are rewarded.
Non-compliance is punished.
Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.
Loving a child doesn’t mean giving in to all his whims.
To love him is to bring out the best in him.
To teach him to love is what is difficult.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow.
But we forget that he is someone today.
Parents, quit worrying about your teenagers when they’re not at home.
A national survey has revealed that they all go to the same place – “out”.
And while there they all do the same thing – “nothing”.
When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.
There is a question mark and promise and wild possibility that exist in each new born infant.
There are magic and mystery in that frail bundle of flesh.
He has genius in his tiny head.
He can grow and he can learn.
The beauty of the world is in his face.
A baby is born with a need to be loved, and never outgrows it.
Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.
( Margaret Mead )
One good father is more than a hundred school teachers.
When a child is punished for their honesty, they begin to lie.
Happiness is seeing my mother smile.
When we teach our children in school, we should say to each of them, “Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel?”
Our children need to learn not only how to read books composed by human genius, but also how to read the great book of the world.
Unborn babies begin yawning after eleven weeks in the womb.
From just 16 weeks, unborn babies can hear your voice and your partner’s too.
By six months, although the womb is buzzing with sounds, they can isolate your voices from all others.
Research by Imperial College, London, found that babies born to depressed mums were prone to unhappiness from birth onwards.
Taste starts to develop in unborn babies at 14 weeks.
What the mother eats passes into the liquid around the baby in the placenta and they take tiny sips.
In a recent study, unborn babies were found to stop their breathing movements for up to 30 minutes after the mother had drunk just one shot of vodka.
Alcohol should be avoided completely while pregnant.
Abandoned Babies ..
An abandoned baby is classed as a true foundling if it is left without any information about who the birth-parents are.
Approximately 60 babies are abandoned every year in the UK and most of their mothers are never traced.
Mothers who have admitted abandoning their babies are often teenagers in denial about their pregnancy or who have been sexually abused.
Older women who have conceived via an extra-marital affair are thought to be the second largest group, after young girls, who abandon their babies.
No one has yet fully realised the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child.
The effort of every education should be to unlock that treasure.
( Emma Goldman )
