Famous quotes containing the word parents:

    Family is the first school for young children, and parents are powerful models.
    Alice Sterling Honig (20th century)

    Fortunately, children do not need “perfect” parents. They do need mothers and fathers who will think on their feet and who will be thoughtful about what they have done. They do need parents who can be flexible, and who can use a variety of approaches to discipline.
    James L. Hymes, Jr. (20th century)

    Children rarely want to know who their parents were before they were parents, and when age finally stirs their curiosity, there is no parent left to tell them.
    Russell Baker (20th century)
