Top Parenting and Inspirational Quotes

If I had my child to raise over again:
I’d build self-esteem first and the house later
I’d finger paint more and point the finger less
I would do less correcting and more connecting
I’d take my eyes off my watch and watch with my eyes
I would care to know less and know to care more
I’d take more hikes and fly more kites
I’d stop playing serious and seriously play
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars
I’d do more hugging and less tugging
I’d see the oak tree in the acorn more often
I would be firm less often and affirm much more
I’d model less about the love of power
And more about the power of love.   -Diane Loomans

Your children need your presence more than your presents.  – Jesse Jackson

Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.  -Robert Fulghum

A parent who has never apologized to his children is a monster.  If he’s always apologizing, his children are monsters.  –Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966

If your kids are giving you a headache, follow the directions on the aspirin bottle, especially the part that says “keep away from children.” – Susan Savannah
