Fortunately, when you're a mom, the responsibility of caring for your child can keep you going.
Because everyone is someone's child, every woman seems like someone's mother.
As a child, I didn't know what I didn't have. I'm thankful for the challenges early on in my life because now I have a perspective on the world and kind of know what's important.
We explore our environment, more than we are compelled to utter poetry, when we're toddlers. We start doing that later. Before that happens, every child is a scientist.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
My parents told me that children were taken from their families in 1941, and my mother had a child taken from her - with the goal of saving him.
When I was a child, my father taught me to put up my fists like a boy and to be prepared to defend myself at all times.
What distresses me at times is that I meet a lot of people in their 40's, 50's, 60's, who still say they're a victim of child abuse.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Pearl S. Buck
A child, like your stomach, doesn't need all you can afford to give it.
Frank A. Clark
Yet, when child sex offenders are brought to justice and serve time for their offenses, they are often released into unsuspecting communities and left free to resume their sexual attacks.
I am told that the first comprehensible word I uttered as a child was 'home.'
Perhaps a child who is fussed over gets a feeling of destiny; he thinks he is in the world for something important, and it gives him drive and confidence.
I was an only child. I needed an alternative to family life - to real life, you could almost say - and cartoons, pictures in a book, the animated movies, seemed to provide it.
I was brought up by my mother and my two sisters, although they're older than me and fled the nest very young, so I was technically raised as an only child, but I was very much loved.
To me in my childhood, elves and fairies of all sorts were very real things, and my dolls were as really children as I was myself a child.
The worst thing you can do to a child, and I've seen it happen so many times, is the silver spoon.
The pain of losing my child was a cleansing experience. I had to throw overboard all excess baggage and keep only what is essential.

Parliaments with more women take up a wider range of issues - including health, education, anti-discrimination, and child support.
As a child, when I lost things such as my precious pocketknife, I learned that if I prayed hard enough, I could usually find it. I was always able to find the lost cows I was entrusted with. Sometimes I had to pray more than once, but my prayers always seemed to be answered.
James E. Faust

The idea that children are passive repositories to be shaped by their parents has been massively overstated. A child's peer group is a far greater determinant of its development and achievements than parental aspiration.
No one tells you that your life is effectively over when you have a child: that you're never going to draw another complacent breath again... or that whatever level of hypochondria and rage you'd learned to repress and live with is going to seem like the good old days.
When you're going through something, whether it's a wonderful thing like having a child or a sad thing like losing somebody, you often feel like 'Oh my God, I'm so overwhelmed; I'm dealing with this huge thing on my own.' In fact, poetry's a nice reminder that, no, everybody goes through it. These are universal experiences.
A child is owed the greatest respect; if you have ever have something disgraceful in mind, don't ignore your son's tender years.
John F. Kennedy
