Reminders to me

After a hard day dealing with your kid, it's good to remind ourselves *myself* of why we're doing this....?!

If you talk to your children, you can help them to keep their lives together. If you talk to them skillfully, you can help them to build future dreams.
--Jim Rohn

A child reminds us that playtime is an essential part of our daily routine.

You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
--Franklin P. Adams American journalist

In raising my children, I have lost my mind but found my soul.
--Lisa T. Shepherd

Good parents give their children Roots and Wings. Roots to know where home is, wings to fly away and exercise what's been taught them.
--Jonas Salk

All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them.
--Earvin "Magic" Johnson

Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.

Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush; anxious for greater developments and greater wishes and so on; so that children have very little time for their parents; Parents have very little time for each other; and the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.
--Mother Teresa
