Quote of the Day
Parenting classes should be mandatory, whether you are adopting or not, and would include an evaluation of your current physical, mental and financial state as well as how ready you are to take on the rigors of parenthood. Our children are our most precious natural resource, and there is absolutely no other way to parent but to put them first.
Our youth deserve the opportunity to complete their high school and college education, free of early parenthood. Their future children deserve the opportunity to grow up in financially and emotionally stable homes. Our communities benefit from healthy, productive, well-prepared young people.
Society needs both parents and nonparents, both the work party and the home party. While raising children is the most important work most people will do, not everyone is cut out for parenthood. And, as many a childless teacher has proved, raising kids is not the only important contribution a person can make to their future.
There is no greater name for a leader than mother or father. There is no leadership more important than parenthood.
Sheri L. Dew
If you are a single parent, make friends with others in similar situations and develop friendships with married couples. Counsel with your priesthood leaders. Let them know of your needs and wants. Single parenthood is understood by the Lord.
Ezra Taft Benson
Becoming a mother cannot help but change things. An author's life is reflected in their writing, whether they want it to be or not, and parenthood is one of the biggest life changes there is.
There's reality shows and things like that and I think 'Parenthood's kind of a throwback to what we used to have back in the '70s, '80s and '90s. People want to see this again, and I feel like it's just a solid, good show.
When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that.
Parenthood remains the greatest single preserve of the amateur.
Cloning looks like a degrading of parenthood and a perversion of the right relation between parents and children.
Parenthood involves massive sacrifice: money, attention, time and emotional energy.
There are times when parenthood seems nothing more than feeding the hand that bites you.
Peter De Vries
Parenthood is such a lesson in self-sacrifice.
Parenthood and family come first for me, and when I'm not working I'm cool with the Teletubbies.
Parents are often so busy with the physical rearing of children that they miss the glory of parenthood, just as the grandeur of the trees is lost when raking leaves.
The essence of parenthood is to make children think that they are the most handsome, intelligent, brilliant person in the world.
Parenthood always comes as a shock. Postpartum blues? Postpartum panic is more like it. We set out to have a baby; what we get is a total take-over of our lives.
Polly Berrien Berends
Like most parents, I want everything for my kids that I didn't have. But I don't intend to spoil them. I just enjoy everything that comes naturally with parenthood.
I don't think anyone masters parenthood.
The self-sacrificing, servant aspect of the Christian life has many parallels to parenthood.
There aren't many great adverts for marriage or parenthood. It always looks so stressful, and that's what I've been scared of. What you don't realise is how much you're going to get back.
Anything that opens you up emotionally is going to impact your acting. Parenthood, becoming a mom, certainly does that.
Maybe it's just parenthood that puts you in a situation where you just have to develop a new attitude, I guess, about things.
I think being a mother helps keep your feet on the ground. There's very little dignity in parenthood. It's a great leveller.
I think parenthood is a wonderful balancing act. On the one hand, you want to spend as much time with your children as possible. On the other hand, you want to set an example for them to see that you're fulfilled in your life and in your work.
