Famous quotes containing the word children:

    To achieve the larger goal of teaching her children consideration of others, a mother can tolerate some frustration of her own wishes, she can delay having what she wants, she can be flexible enough to compromise. And this is exactly what her child must also learn: that it is possible to survive frustration, it is possible to wait for what he wants, it is possible to compromise without capitulating.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    Not only is our love for our children sometimes tinged with annoyance, discouragement, and disappointment, the same is true for the love our children feel for us.
    Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    Let parents then bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)
