It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.
My children are the reason I laugh, smile and want to get up every morning.
Gena Lee Nolin
Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.
Charles R. Swindoll
A child who is allowed to be disrespectful to his parents will not have true respect for anyone.
To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favor of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior Himself.
James E. Faust
At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents.
Jane D. Hull
I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection.
Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.
We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves.
Henry Ward Beecher
Having a baby is a life-changer. It gives you a whole other perspective on why you wake up every day.

There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Parenting is not giving your child everything they want. Parenting is not being your child's friend. Parenting is about preparing your child to be a useful and respectful person in society.
Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence.
Everybody knows how to raise children, except the people who have them.
P. J. O'Rourke
Childhood is a short season.
Children are educated by what the grown-up is and not by his talk.
When you hold your baby in your arms the first time, and you think of all the things you can say and do to influence him, it's a tremendous responsibility. What you do with him can influence not only him, but everyone he meets and not for a day or a month or a year but for time and eternity.
Every word, facial expression, gesture, or action on the part of a parent gives the child some message about self-worth. It is sad that so many parents don't realize what messages they are sending.
If I feel good about my parenting, I have no interest in judging other people's choices. If I feel good about my body, I don't go around making fun of other people's weight or appearance. We're hard on each other because we're using each other as a launching pad out of our own perceived deficiency.
A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it.
Frank A. Clark
There is no job more important than parenting. This I believe.
I think parenting these days is definitely different from when a lot of people grew up. As much blame as we give a lot of our kids for what they're not doing... I also try to give them as much credit for dealing with things that we didn't have to deal with. Bullying was one on one and face to face. Now it's all over the Internet.
Screaming at children over their grades, especially to the point of the child's tears, is child abuse, pure and simple. It's not funny and it's not good parenting. It is a crushing, scarring, disastrous experience for the child. It isn't the least bit funny.
Somebody once told me I treated my smart phone like Wilson, the volleyball Tom Hanks turns into a friend when he's stranded on a desert island in that movie 'Castaway.' It's an apt comparison: parenting a toddler occasionally feels like being marooned, and your phone is your only connection to the rest of the world.
Kids are fat because of lack of parenting.
Leave part of the yard rough. Don't manicure everything. Small children in particular love to turn over rocks and find bugs, and give them some space to do that. Take your child fishing. Take your child on hikes.
