My parents say it’s their house but when it’s time to clean, it magically becomes my house, too.
Modern version of parenting: Shove an iPad in the child’s face anytime you’re actually required to be a parent. Teaches the child absolutely nothing about how to behave and interact with human beings.

– Adam Grant
Tip: It’s important parents take little “time outs” for themselves too. Even if you feel pretty guilty when you return 14 years later.

Meaning of “Entitlement-mentality”: A curse passed from parents to their offsprings by giving them everything they demand and making them to believe less in working hard to achieve anything.
One of the greatest titles in the world is parent, and one of the biggest blessings in the world is to have parents to call mom and dad.
– Jim DeMint
I don’t like talking on the phone when my parents are listening. So uncomfortable.
Generally speaking, you should not assume responsibility for things you cannot control. Parentally speaking, that’s usually not an option.
– Alan Robert Neal
Have you ever noticed how parents can go from the most wonderful people in the world to totally embarrassing in three seconds?
I also believe that parents, if they love you, will hold you up safely, above their swirling waters, and sometimes that means you’ll never know what they endured, and you may treat them unkindly, in a way you otherwise wouldn’t.
– Mitch Albom
All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.
– Mitch Albom
Parents are our best friend. They hide all the tensions from us to see their child happy so it’s my heartily request to all that you never do anything which will make your parents cry.
When I was a kid my parents moved a lot, but I always found them.

– Erma Bombeck
If you can keep your son off the pipe and your daughter off the pole, you’re ahead of the game.
– Chris Rock
The most beautiful thing in the world is to see your parents happy and knowing that you are the reason behind their happiness.
First your parents, they give you your life, but then they try to give you their life.
– Chuck Palahniuk
Single parent mothers who aren’t spending their time looking for a man but spending their time providing for their children are the most admirable people on earth.
My promise to my Kids: I am not your friend. I am your Mother. I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare & hunt you down like a bloodhound when needed because I LOVE YOU! When you understand that, I will know you are a responsible adult. You will never find someone who loves, prays, cares and worries about you more than I do!
A good father is a source of inspiration and self-restraint. A good mother is the root of kindness and humbleness.
– Dr T.P.Chia
Apparent. A word that does not make sense until you become one.
Your child will follow your example, not your advice.
