I think if you follow anyone home, whether they live in Houston or London, and you sit at their dinner table and talk to them about their mother who has cancer or their child who is struggling in school, and their fears about watching their lives go by, I think we're all the same.
When I stopped seeing my mother through the eyes of a child, I saw the woman who helped me give birth to myself.
The worst thing you can do to a child, and I've seen it happen so many times, is the silver spoon.
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.
I think all Americans believe in human rights. And health is an often overlooked aspect of basic human rights. And it's one that's easily corrected. The reason I say that is that many of the diseases that we treat around the world, I knew when I was a child. My mother was a registered nurse. And they no longer exist in our country.
Never give up on your child. But also, you have to love your child.
Even as a child, I knew what I didn't want. I didn't want to wear red lipstick.
A lot of things you see as a child remain with you... you spend a lot of your life trying to recapture the experience.
I'm the person that I always was, but in terms of how I approach my living, I'm not the same person at all. At all. I've buried a child, I've ended a marriage, and the grandson that I was raising is now grown. My family has totally shifted.
If a child goes the wrong way, it is not the child who is to be blamed; it is the parents who are responsible.
I didn't know how babies were made until I was pregnant with my fourth child.
When we believe that God is Father, we also believe that such a father's hand will never cause his child a needless tear. We may not understand life any better, but we will not resent life any longer.
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.
A child is owed the greatest respect; if you have ever have something disgraceful in mind, don't ignore your son's tender years.
Aristotle uses a mother's love for her child as the prime example of love or friendship.
If you want to turn out an atheist child, unconditional love constantly is a good way to do it.
As a child I was a great liar. Fortunately my mother liked my lies. I promised her marvelous things.
I always said if it gets to a point where I really want a child, I would adopt; kids are amazing, so I'm getting the selfish stuff out of my system so when I have them I can say, 'Go, run. I have plenty of money, go play.'
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
I might run from her for a thousand years and she is still my baby child. Our love is so furious that we burn each other out.
There's a really unique relationship between a single parent and their child. Marriages so easily break up. There's kind of this temporary deal about marriages. That's one of the things that makes it stressful, and that's something that's nonexistent in a parent-child relationship.
It's not like I want to hop on a bandwagon, because I said it 15 years ago - bringing a child into your life who is not genetically yours is one of the most beautiful things you can do. But I'm also interested in having my own baby, too.
Tyra the businesswoman is very close to - and I hate third person, but you said it, oh, chiiild, you said it - but me the businessperson and me the person: very similar. I can be in a business meeting and be all 'Wooo!' and 'Oh, child!' and still be talking revenues and profits and cash flows.
In the 19th century, a lot of people were against outlawing child labour, because to do so would be against the very foundations of a free market economy: 'These children want to work, these people want to employ them... what is your problem? It's not as if anyone has kidnapped them...'
I was extreme... from skateboarder to hip-hopper to rave child to lead singer of a rock band - I did it all, and all at the same time.
