parenting quotes

Let's start off with some wonderful quotes I have gathered over time.

"Don't worry that children never listen to you, worry that they are always watching you" - Robert Fulghum

“Rewards and punishments are not opposites at all; they are two sides of the same coin. And it is a coin that does not buy very much” - Alfie Kohn

"Evil exists. But it is not something that some people are born with. It is produced by society, every day, every hour, unceasingly, all over the world." - Alice Miller

"There is no single effort more radical in its potential for saving the world than a transformation of the way we raise our children." ~ Marianne Williamson

"When parents experience excessive strain this is largely due to our adherence to the myth that it takes just two adults to raise a child. Our society has grossly underestimated the energy required to truly meet children's needs." - Robin Grille and Beth Macgregor

"It takes a village to raise a child." african proverb

"One generation plants the trees; another gets the shade." Chinese proverb

"People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one." ~Leo J. Burke
