Quote of the Day
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
I think the future of psychotherapy and psychology is in the school system. We need to teach every child how to rarely seriously disturb himself or herself and how to overcome disturbance when it occurs.
The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.
Love is the child of illusion and the parent of disillusion.
Miguel de Unamuno
A torn jacket is soon mended; but hard words bruise the heart of a child.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Screaming at children over their grades, especially to the point of the child's tears, is child abuse, pure and simple. It's not funny and it's not good parenting. It is a crushing, scarring, disastrous experience for the child. It isn't the least bit funny.
Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fantasies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in after years relieved of them.
Part of the reason for the ugliness of adults, in a child's eyes, is that the child is usually looking upwards, and few faces are at their best when seen from below.
I was a huge fan of comedy when I was a child.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Experience is the child of thought, and thought is the child of action.
A child who does not play is not a child, but the man who doesn't play has lost forever the child who lived in him and who he will miss terribly.
To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.
A treatment method or an educational method that will work for one child may not work for another child. The one common denominator for all of the young children is that early intervention does work, and it seems to improve the prognosis.
A child cannot be taught by anyone who despises him, and a child cannot afford to be fooled.
James A. Baldwin
I never met anyone who didn't have a very smart child. What happens to these children, you wonder, when they reach adulthood?
Never in any case say I have lost such a thing, but I have returned it. Is your child dead? It is a return. Is your wife dead? It is a return. Are you deprived of your estate? Is not this also a return?
Success is the child of audacity.
In marriage there are no manners to keep up, and beneath the wildest accusations no real criticism. Each is familiar with that ancient child in the other who may erupt again. We are not ridiculous to ourselves. We are ageless. That is the luxury of the wedding ring.
I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.
Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.
Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
Rainer Maria Rilke
It is a masterpiece of the devil to make us believe that children cannot understand religion. Would Christ have made a child the standard of faith if He had known that it was not capable of understanding His words?
Dwight L. Moody
It takes three to make a child.
e. e. cummings
If a child, a spouse, a life partner, or a parent depends on you and your income, you need life insurance.
When it comes to developing character strength, inner security and unique personal and interpersonal talents and skills in a child, no institution can or ever will compare with, or effectively substitute for, the home's potential for positive influence.
Don't force your kids into sports. I never was. To this day, my dad has never asked me to go play golf. I ask him. It's the child's desire to play that matters, not the parent's desire to have the child play. Fun. Keep it fun.
A child's kiss is magic. Why else would they be so stingy with them?
Likely as not, the child you can do the least with will do the most to make you proud.
I have known more men destroyed by the desire to have wife and child and to keep them in comfort than I have seen destroyed by drink and harlots.
William Butler Yeats
