Parents

Famous quotes containing the word parents:

    Many working mothers feel guilty about not being at home. And when they are there, they wish it could be perfect.... This pressure to make every minute happy puts working parents in a bind when it comes to setting limits and modifying behavior.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)

    Sometimes the children who are no problem to their parents should be looked at more closely. This is especially true if those children are extremely obedient and have few friends their own age. A good self-concept allows children to explore the world, risk engaging in conflict and failing. Children who play it safe by never disobeying or risking conflict may be telling you that they feel unqualified to face the world head-on.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    A slavish bondage to parents cramps every faculty of the mind.
    Mary Wollstonecraft (1759–1797)
