Famous quotes containing the word children:

    Clara: I don’t think a mother should depend so much upon her children for her rewards in life.
    Mrs. Pilletti: Well, that’s what they teach you in New York University. It real life, it no work out like this.
    Paddy Chayefsky (1923–1981)

    The conviction that the best way to prepare children for a harsh, rapidly changing world is to introduce formal instruction at an early age is wrong. There is simply no evidence to support it, and considerable evidence against it. Starting children early academically has not worked in the past and is not working now.
    David Elkind (20th century)

    No parent should strive to be like another; just like our children, each of us is unique. And just as we love each of our children for being a special person, our children learn to love each of us for being a distinct parent and person.
    Saf Lerman (20th century)
