Do not educate your child to be rich.
Educate your child to be happy.
So when your children grow up, they will know the value of things, not the price.
The small hopes and plans of children should be tenderly respected by grown-up people.
( Louisa May Alcott )
I wouldn’t change my children for the world,
But I do wish I could change the world for my children.
Don’t just teach your children to read.
Teach them to question what they read..
Teach them to question everything.
( George Carlin )
Silence is golden, unless you have children.
Then silence is just suspicious.
If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.
If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.
( Albert Einstein )
Children need Nature and Nature needs children.
Children begin by loving their parents.
As they grow older they judge them. Sometimes they forgive them.
( Oscar Wilde )
In the 21st century we have witnessed the rise of children who see life through a mobile phone, a tablet or a computer screen. And the children who are not drowning in a sea of electronic games are either homeless or living in poverty.
Children see magic because they look for it.
( Christopher Moore )
Penelope Leach, the liberals’ favourite child-care expert, says there’s no doubt that divorce damages children. And Professor Sir Simon Wessely, the new head of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, warns against the medicalisation (and drugging) 0f normal children. If they say so, it must be bad.
( Peter Hitchens, 29.06.2014 )
We cannot always build the future for our youth.
But we can build our youth for the future.
( Franklin D. Roosevelt )
Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me.
( Fred Rogers )
Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
( William Martin )
While we try to teach our children all about life.
Our children teach us what life is all about.
( Angela Schwindt )
Girls see these defined roles they are supposed to follow in life.
But when I was a young child, my parents told me I could be anything.
( Joan Jett )
You spend years wishing your parents would get off your back.
Only to realise they are the only ones who ever really had your back.
Don’t handicap your children by making their lives easy.
( Robert A. Heinlein )
Respect your parents.
They had to do their homework without Google.
It’s the children the world almost breaks who grow up to save it.
( Frank Warren )
There are two gifts we should give our children.
One is roots. The other is wings.
Grown-ups are complicated creatures, full of quirks and secrets.
( Roald Dahl )
The greatest lesson a father can teach his son is to respect all women.
The only love that I really believe in is a mother’s love for her children.
( Karl Lagerfeld )
The creative adult is the child who survived.
Your kids require you most of all to love them for who they are.
Not to spend your whole time trying to correct them.
( Bill Ayers )
It is far better to put these children in the hands of a very good religious organisation, and the mother as well, so that they will be brought up with family values.
( Margaret Thatcher on single mothers in 1998 )
Parents are like shuttles on a loom.
They join the threads of the past with threads of the future and leave their own bright patterns as they go.
( Fred Rogers )
When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of “overtime” when the angel appeared and said, “You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on this one.”
( Erma Bombeck )
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted.
( Garrison Keillor )
Happiness for a mother is when she realises her children have turned out to be good, kind people.
I sometimes wake in the early morning and listen to the soft breathing of my child.
And I think to myself, this is one thing I will never regret.
And I carry that quiet with me all day long.
( Brian Andreas )
Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.
( H. Jackson Brown, Jr. )
You can learn a lot about your kids by simply turning off the TV and talking.
I discovered that mine are really boring.

The sin of abortion, or the destruction of unborn children – lies somewhere a close kin to the crime of destroying human life and certainly to be condemned.
( Harold B. Lee, 1899-1973 )
Abortion is killing. Nobody can argue with that.
When the foetus is inside the uterus it is alive, and when the pregnancy is terminated it is dead.
That by any definition is killing.
( Dr. Bertram Wainer, 1928-1987 )
