Fear is the only true enemy, born of ignorance and the parent of anger and hate.
The bond between a parent and child is the primary bond, the foundation for the rest of the child's life. The presence or absence of this bond determines much about the child's resiliency and what kind of adult they will grow up to be.
For me, already being part of a single parent household and knowing it was just me and my mom, you'd would wake up times and hope that the next day you'd be able to be alongside your mother because she was out trying to make sure that I was taken care of. But all I cared about was her being home.
But I was the most unashamed lone parent you were ever going to meet.
J. K. Rowling
Rashness is the faithful, but unhappy parent of misfortune.
R. Buckminster Fuller
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.
For the impious act begets more after it, like to the parent stock.
Research is starting to show that a child should be engaged at least 20 hours a week. I do not think it matters which program you choose as long as it keeps the child actively engaged with the therapist, teacher, or parent for at least 20 hours a week.
I understand the importance of bondage between parent and child.
A very painful part of being a parent is having really negative feelings about your children when you love them so much.
Louis C. K.
Kids are a great analogy. You want your kids to grow up, and you don't want your kids to grow up. You want your kids to become independent of you, but it's also a parent's worst nightmare: That they won't need you. It's like the real tragedy of parenting.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I dropped out of NYU, moved out of my parent's house, got my own place, and survived on my own. I made music and worked my way from the bottom up.
A mortal parent may appreciate, in some small way, the feelings of a loving Heavenly Father. When our children come to the age when they must leave our direct care, we feel anxiety for their safety and concern that those who are to help them will not fail them.
Henry B. Eyring
We all parent the best we can. Being human, we're ambivalent. We want perfection for our babies, but we also need sleep.
There's no handbook for parenting. So you walk a very fine line as a parent because you are civilizing these raw things. They will tip the coffee over and finger-paint on the table. At some point, you have to say, 'We're gonna have to clean that up because you don't paint with coffee on a table.'
I had years of partying, and I was kind of surprised and happy I survived it all. Now, being a parent, I look back on it thinking, Oh God, the things you did!
When you become a parent, you look at your parents differently. You look at being a child differently. It's an awakening, a revelation that you have.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Any parent who tells their kids that they can't attend a school play or go to a soccer match because they have to work is kidding themselves. It's OK to miss a game or two or a performance here and there, but it's not all right to miss the majority of them.
I don't think anybody feels like they're a good parent. Or if people think they're good parents, they ought to think again.
You don't want to be that parent - the one who dresses his kid in a cloth sack when all the other kids are in Armani cloth sacks - especially in a time like ours, when materialism is not only rampant and ascendant but is fast becoming the only game in town.
Whatever I do, it's my business. It's not my job to parent America.
At work, you're replaceable... but as a parent, you're irreplaceable.
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.
Success, for me, is that if my son chooses to be a stay-at-home parent, he is cheered on for that decision. And if my daughter chooses to work outside the home and is successful, she's cheered on and supported.
Time is the king of all men, he is their parent and their grave, and gives them what he will and not what they crave.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Image of the Moment
Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.
