QUOTES ON PARENTING
I was going through some quotes today for my book.
Thought instead of writing anything new I would share them with all of you.
Have a great day!
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them. ~Oscar Wilde ays, 1933
It would seem that something which means poverty, disorder and violence every single day should be avoided entirely, but the desire to beget children is a natural urge. ~Phyllis Diller
A parent who has never apologized to his children is a monster. If he’s always apologizing, his children are monsters. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966
Parenthood is the passing of a baton, followed by a lifelong disagreement as to who dropped it. ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com
Having babies is fun, but babies grow up into people. ~M*A*S*H, Colonel Potter, “The Price of Tomato Juice”
Most American children suffer too much mother and too little father. ~Gloria Steinem, New York Times, 26 August 1971
Humans are the only animals that have children on purpose with the exception of guppies, who like to eat theirs. ~P.J. O’Rourke
A child enters your home and for the next twenty years makes so much noise you can hardly stand it. The child departs, leaving the house so silent you think you are going mad. ~John Andrew Holmes
Setting a good example for your children takes all the fun out of middle age. ~William Feather, The Business of Life, 1949
Your responsibility as a parent is not as great as you might imagine. You need not supply the world with the next conqueror of disease or major motion-picture star. If your child simply grows up to be someone who does not use the word “collectible” as a noun, you can consider yourself an unqualified success. ~Fran Lebowitz, “Parental Guidance,” Social Studies, 1981
A child, like your stomach, doesn’t need all you can afford to give it. ~Frank A. Clark
Your children vividly remember every unkind thing you ever did to them, plus a few you really didn’t. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966
