Famous quotes containing the word davis:

    One of the important things to learn about parenting is that the more you worry about a child, the less the child will worry about him- or herself....instead of worrying, watch with fascination and wonder as your child’s life unfolds, and help the child take responsibility for his or her own life.
    —Charlotte Davis Kasl (20th century)
