The Lives of a Child

Experts tell us that 90% of all brain development occurs by the age of five. If we don't begin thinking about education in the early years, our children are at risk of falling behind by the time they start Kindergarten.

Robert L Ehrlich

Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones you accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you you no matter what.

It's too bad that 90 % of brain development doesn't begin after our 40s... makes more sense to me! If nothing else, "kids" should begin university after they turn 40!

A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold. 
Ogden Nash

Having one child makes you a parent; having two you are referee.
David Frost 

I take a very practical view of raising children. I put a sign in each of their rooms: 'Checkout Time is 18 years.'

Erma Bombeck

The more we shelter children from every disappointment, the more devastating future disappointments will be.

Fred G. Gosman

We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today. 
Stacia Tauscher

 In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.  
Friedrich Nietzche

A father is God's gift to every child, children need the very basics to grow into fine youth just give them all the Love you can.
