Parents

Famous quotes containing the word parents:

    When parents fail to set appropriate limits, children may feel more vulnerable at night: the aggressive urges that have not been “tamed” by day may be terrifying to a small child alone in the dark.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)

    Most childhood problems don’t result from “bad” parenting, but are the inevitable result of the growing that parents and children do together. The point isn’t to head off these problems or find ways around them, but rather to work through them together and in doing so to develop a relationship of mutual trust to rely on when the next problem comes along.
    Fred Rogers (20th century)

    My parents wanted me to solace them for sorrows they denied having had.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
