Parenting Quotes

Here are some of my favorite parenting quotes that I think every parents are aware but many cannot ironically practice:

There comes a time when a woman needs to stop thinking about her looks and focus her energies on raising her children.  This time comes at the moment of conception.  A child needs a role model, not a supermodel. 
~Astrid Alauda, on the "hot mom" trend

It's not only children who grow.  Parents do too.  As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours.  I can't tell my children to reach for the sun.  All I can do is reach for it, myself.
 ~Joyce Maynard

Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.
~Robert Fulghum

If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders. 
~Abigail Van Buren

Children have more need of models than of critics. 
~Carolyn Coats, Things Your Dad Always Told You But You Didn't Want to Hear
