The gain is not the having of children; it is the discovery of love and how to be loving.More Polly Berends quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Suddenly we have a baby who poops and cries, and we are trying to calm, clean up, and pin things together all at once. Then as fast as we learn to cope--so soon--it is hard to recall why diapers ever seemed so important. The frontiers change, and now perhaps we have a teenager we can't reach.More Polly Berends quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The trouble with most problem-solving books for parents is that they start with the idea that the child has a problem. Then they try to tell us how to fix the child, or else, after blaming the parent, they suggest how we can fix ourselves.More Polly Berends quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We cannot spare our children the influence of harmful values by turning off the television any more than we can keep them home forever or revamp the world before they get there. Merely keeping them in the dark is no protection and, in fact, can make them vulnerable and immature.More Polly Berends quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Most of us would do more for our babies than we have ever been willing to do for anyone, even ourselves.More Polly Berends quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
