Don't worry that children never listen to you;
worry that they're always watching you.

~ Robert Fulghum

The most important thing that parents can teach
their children is how to get along without them.

~ Frank A. Clark

It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As
much as we watch to see what our children do with
their lives, they are watching us to see what we do
with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun.
All I can do is reach for it myself.

~ Joyce Maynard

fathering is not something perfect men do, but something
that perfects the man. The end product of child raising is
not the child but the parent.

~ Frank Pittman

This time comes at the moment of conception. A child needs a
role model, not a supermodel.

~ Astrid Alauda

Quotes about Parenting

The mother-child relationship is paradoxical ... it requires
the most intense love on the mother's side,
yet this very love must help the child grow
away from the mother and become fully independent.

~ Erich Fromm

All the time a person is a child he is ... learning to be a parent. After he becomes a parent, he becomes
predominantly a parent reliving his childhood.

~ Benjamin Spock

The commonest fallacy among women is that simply
having children makes them a mother which is as
absurd as believing that having a piano makes one
a musician.

~ Sydney J. Harris

And so our mothers and grandmothers have, more
often than not anonymously handed on the creative
spark, the seed of the flower they themselves never
hoped to see ... or like a sealed letter they could
not plainly read.

~ Alice Walker
