Famous quotes containing the word challenge:

    Our challenge as parents is to be patient enough to allow our children to take ten minutes to do something that would take us two seconds. We need to allow our children to develop what I call their “struggle muscle.” This is developed the same way any other muscle develops, through regular exercise.
    Stephanie Martson (20th century)

    The abjection of our political situation is the only true challenge today. Only facing up to this situation in all its desperation can help us get out of it.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    The very best reason parents are so special . . . is because we are the holders of a priceless gift, a gift we received from countless generations we never knew, a gift that only we now possess and only we can give to our children. That unique gift, of course, is the gift of ourselves. Whatever we can do to give that gift, and to help others receive it, is worth the challenge of all our human endeavor.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)
