High school wasn't so bad though because, by then, I had worked out that there were far more nerdy kids and poor kids than there were rich, popular kids, so, at the very least, we had them outnumbered.
Especially girls, but any kids exposed to music programs and arts programs do much better on their tests. They have a better chance of going to college. They can focus better. You know, we're not just automatons learning how to work machines and do engineering and math and science. All of that's great, but you've got to build a whole person.
We're parents first, and once you have kids, everybody knows that you have priority lists. Number one is your family and everything else just kind of finds its place.
I'm used to being around kids. Even when I was growing up in London, I had an older sister, I had a younger sister that I used to look after from time to time.
I just like seeing kids inspired.
Do you want to be an artist and a writer, or a wife and a lover? With kids, your focus changes. I don't want to go to PTA meetings.
As far as my street cred goes, I'll always have that, because I always hang with the kids. I'll jump right off the stage and buy them a beer. I'll be a star on stage, but I'll always hang with the kids.
The easiest way to convince my kids that they don't really need something is to get it for them.
I'm not Hans Christian Anderson. Nobody's gonna make a statue in the park with a lot of scrambling kids climbing up me. I won't have it, okay?
I tend to write during the day so I can see my children at night. But if my kids aren't with me and I have a chunk of time when I'm a single woman living in my house for a miraculous week, I will get to write at different hours.
I think a lot of what is going on with kids who get pushed too far and attempt either murder or suicide is that they are trying to deal with their own non-existence for the people who are supposed to care most for them.
The best you can do is set your kids on the right track; staying on it without falling is up to the kids.
Boxing's a poor man's sport. We can't afford to play golf or tennis. It is what it is. It's kept so many kids off the street. It kept me off the street.
Sugar Ray Leonard
My kids are the future of the Mayweather family and of the Mayweather brand. I feel our family is stronger if we stay together.

As I get older, I want to do more films for kids because they're the best audience around. Just putting a smile on a kid's face is the best thing.
When you can see kids smiling, that's one of the best things. That's why I did 'Narnia.'
The kids today, they think they can dance with their faces.
I really believe that you grow up a certain way in New York. There's a New York morality, a sense of loyalty. You know how to win and lose. There's a thousand kids outside, you know who to push and who not to push. There's a sixth sense you develop just because it's New York.
It's amazing. My kids have grown me in ways I never knew possible. The patience I've received and the love I get from them is just amazing.

I am the guy dressing up in, you know, the caveman outfit for the kids' birthday parties.
I remember wishing there was snow in L.A. And how jealous we used to get of those Christmas specials with kids playing in the snow.
As kids, our experiences shape our opinions of ourselves and the world around us, and that's who we become as adults.
Track and field is the best way to reach out for kids. It doesn't matter how fast you are. You always want to beat someone.
But I really feel strongly that our kids do way too much homework. The research is on my side. It's easy to make a fuss when you're right. That can be the tagline of my life: 'It's Easy To Make A Fuss When You're Right.'
I feel happy to terrify kids.
