Famous quotes containing the word parents:

    If we parents accept that problems are an essential part of life’s challenges, rather than reacting to every problem as if something has gone wrong with universe that’s supposed to be perfect, we can demonstrate serenity and confidence in problem solving for our kids....By telling them that we know they have a problem and we know they can solve it, we can pass on a realistic attitude as well as empower our children with self-confidence and a sense of their own worth.
    Barbara Coloroso (20th century)

    The very fact that there are experts may be intimidating; we hate to think that there must be one best way to handle any situation as parents and that we don’t know what it is. So as we get more and more advice we seem less and less sure of what we ought to do for our children.
    C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    Was I not born in this Realm? Were my parents born in any foreign country?... Is not my Kingdom here? Whom have I oppressed? Whom have I enriched to other’s harm? What turmoil have I made to this Commonwealth that I should be suspected to have no regard of the same?
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
