(Written by Tom Cafferkey) There are many thought-provoking and inspiring quotes on the web to help adults in their journey as parents. Raising a child can be a difficult task and one that brings many challenges on a daily basis. Often or not one requires a great deal of strength to get through trials and tribulations and for some, wise parenting quotes can be helpful.
Parenthood is not an easy job and it doesn’t exactly come with a manual but here are some stimulating citations to guide you on your voyage.
- “There is no such thing as a perfect parent so just be a real one”. – Sue Atkins
This is a fundamental tip; no parent is flawless and as humans we all make mistakes. You are bound to make errors whilst raising your child but what matters is that you learn from these and become better parents.
- “Your children will become what you are; so be what you want them to be”. – David Bly
A child only learns from those around them. They are not born with ideas or knowledge, they learn this from you. It is therefore your responsibility to teach right from wrong and set yourself as a good example for them to follow. It is pointless telling them that they must wear their seatbelt for health and safety reasons, if you do not wear one.
- “The law of love could be best understood and learned through little children”. – Ghandi
Children are innocent human beings and the love they offer is eternal. Parents can actually learn a great deal from their own children and as life goes up and down, it pays to bear in mind that often offspring will have the answers.
- “A child enters your home and for the next 20 years makes so much noise you can hardly stand it. The child departs, leaving the house so silent you think you are going mad”. – John Andrew Holmes
People often say you never know what you have until it’s gone and this is genuine for children. As trying and difficult as kids can be, remember that there will come a day when they may not need you as much anymore of in fact not even be there. Embrace every precious moment with your little ones.
