Motivational Thoughts on Parenting



A mother should give her children a superabundance of enthusiasm, that after they have lost all they are sure to lose in mixing with the world, enough may still remain to prompt and support them through great actions.
-- Julius C. Hare

Train a child in the way he should go, and walk there yourself once in a while.
-- American Prover

We criticize mothers for closeness. We criticize fathers for distance. How many of us have expected less from our fathers and appreciated what they gave us more?
-- Ellen Goodman

The debt of gratitude we owe our mother and father goes forward, not backward. What we owe our parents is the bill presented to us by our children.
-- Nancy Friday

Each generation will reap what the former generation has sown.
-- Chinese Proverb

There are so many disciplines in being a parent besides the obvious ones like getting up in the night and putting up with the noise during the day. And almost the hardest of all is learning to be a well of affection and not a fountain, to show them we love them, not when we feel like it, but when they do.
-- Nan Fairbrother

The college years are when your children and your luggage both leave home - but the laundry comes back to visit.
-- Robert Orben

The ardor of parental affection consumes the heart with its fire.
-- American Proverb

If you could give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
-- Bruce Barton

When you were a kid, you never understood what your parents were going through. Now you'd just like to know how they got through it.
-- Unknown Author

A child does not need to be parented. He needs to be mothered and fathered.
-- Zan Thompson

Since God could not be everywhere, he created mothers.
-- Jewish Proverb

Children speak in the field what they hear in the house.
-- Scottish Proverb

If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much.
-- Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

A mother is not a person to lean on but a person to make leaning unnecessary.
-- Dorothy Canfield Fisher

Most of the time, a mother is the most taken-for-granted member of the family. Let her know she is loved and appreciated.
-- Unknown Author

The best thing to spend on your children is your time.
-- Unknown Author

There are only two kinds of travel: first class and with children.
-- Unknown Author
