Let your children go if you want to keep them.
Everyone who knows me will know the truth, which is that my children come first in my life and that I would never harm any child.
But there's no substitute for a full-time dad. Dads who are fully engaged with their kids overwhelmingly tend to produce children who believe in themselves and live full lives.
Parents lend children their experience and a vicarious memory; children endow their parents with a vicarious immortality.
The training of children is a profession, where we must know how to waste time in order to save it.
Most of us become parents long before we have stopped being children.
Teach you children poetry; it opens the mind, lends grace to wisdom and makes the heroic virtues hereditary.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Michel de Montaigne
You end up as you deserve. In old age you must put up with the face, the friends, the health, and the children you have earned.
There is much good luck in the world, but it is luck. We are none of us safe. We are children, playing or quarrelling on the line.
E. M. Forster
Good words will not give me back my children.
All God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.
If I am elected President of these United States, I will work with all my energy and soul to restore that America, to lift our eyes to a better future. That future is our destiny. That future is out there. It is waiting for us. Our children deserve it, our nation depends upon it, the peace and freedom of the world require it.
It is immoral to brand children with religion. 'This is a Catholic child.' 'That is a Muslim child.' I want everyone to flinch when they hear such a phrase, just as they would if they heard, 'That is a Marxist child.'
Now is the moment when we can stand up and say, 'I'm an American. I make my destiny. And we deserve better! My children deserve better! My family deserves better. My country deserves better!' So here we stand. Americans have a choice.
All children alarm their parents, if only because you are forever expecting to encounter yourself.

The entire political system is contrary to everything a feminine heart stands for. It lacks inclusion. It lacks tenderness toward children. It lacks honor for relationships. It lacks reverence for the earth. It lacks love. And without those things, the feminine psyche disconnects.
Education begins at home and I applaud the parents who recognize that they - not someone else - must take responsibility to assure that their children are well educated.
I wouldn't want to have the thought police going to people's homes, dictating what they teach their children. I don't want to be Big Brotherish. I would hate that.
It's wrong for parents to bury their children. It should be the other way around.
Walk a mile in my shoes is good advice. Our children will learn to respect others if they are used to imagining themselves in another's place.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
