C. JoyBell C.

Bill Cosby
“In spite of the six thousand manuals on child raising in the bookstores, child raising is still a dark continent and no one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and luck - and, of course, courage.”
Bill Cosby, Fatherhood

Adele Faber
“I was a wonderful parent before I had children.”
Adele Faber, How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk

Anne Lamott

Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

Susan Sarandon

Susan Sarandon

T.F. Hodge
“Scorned and torn, former love mates aim and shoot childish devastating daggers that penetrate beyond target to pierce the heart of their offspring.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

“By making eye-contact, getting down to your child's level, offering a touch, or using a tone of your voice that conveys a desire to genuinely connect, you disarm yourself. You make it possible to reach your child more deeply and truly move forward together.”
Hilary Flower, Adventures in Gentle Discipline: A Parent-to-Parent Guide

“Your job as a parent is not to make your child's way smooth, but rather to help her develop inner resources so she can cope.”
Ellyn Satter, Child of Mine: Feeding with Love and Good Sense, Revised and Updated Edition

Heather Schuck

Heather Schuck, The Working Mom Manifesto

Rebecca Eanes

Rebecca Eanes, The Newbie's Guide to Positive Parenting

Galit Breen
“As parents we're meant to help each other out and build each other up.”
Galit Breen, Kindness Wins

Susan Shapiro Barash

Susan Shapiro Barash

“Show me a mother who says she is 100 percent gentle, 100 percent of the time, and I'll show you a mother in deep, deep denial, and probably passive-agressive to boot." - Lynn Siprelle”
Hilary Flower, Adventures in Gentle Discipline: A Parent-to-Parent Guide

Daniel Mackler
“People who are not fully enlightened have no business becoming parents. This contradicts the conventionally accepted notion that people have an inherent "right" to have children. They do not. People who have a compulsion to traumatize a child, even in the mildest forms, are breaking the child's human rights, though of course the parental compulsion to find false pleasure through procreation obliterates their awareness of these rights. But interestingly, many parents would agree that convicted pedophiles and child murderers have no right to procreate, because of the dynamics in which they are so likely to engage.”
Daniel Mackler, Toward truth: A psychological guide to enlightenment

Galit Breen
“Education is our path to change. Minds and hearts are brightened via learning.”
Galit Breen, Kindness Wins

“So I entered parenting with only 3 clear goals: to love, to cherish, and to listen." - Melissa Ridge Carter”
Hilary Flower, Adventures in Gentle Discipline: A Parent-to-Parent Guide

Alex Morritt
“Age is a seasoned trickster. To our parents, we will always be children. Within ourselves, the same yearnings of youth; the same aspirations of adolescence, will last a lifetime. Only to the young - blinded by our grey hair and slowing gait - do we appear old and increasingly beyond the pale.”

Lisa Goldstein
“Nick turned out to be a shy boy, uncertain in groups and in new situations, but also very brave, determined to overcome his fear." - Will, as a parent describing his son”
Lisa Goldstein, The Uncertain Places

“The more power you give your child in any discipline process, the more likely he will be to be able to make it work positively for himself.”
Hilary Flower, Adventures in Gentle Discipline: A Parent-to-Parent Guide

“Overall, your want to present yourself to your child as an ally, empathetic to his feelings, and responsive to his needs - even when your needs are conflicting. If your goal is to enlist your child's cooperation in changing his behavior, find ways to be as aligned with his emotionally as possible. By earning your child's trust, you are much more likely to reach him with your point of view than if you approach him in opposition.”
Hilary Flower, Adventures in Gentle Discipline: A Parent-to-Parent Guide

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Love one another with great passion.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Beautiful Quotes

“Try as we might, we cannot force our children to reach their full potential. Theirs is the life that they alone must live. The role of the parent is to prepare the most fertile soil and appropriately water the seedling so it can most fully blossom.”
Gabriel Cousens M.D., Conscious Parenting: The Holistic Guide to Raising and Nourishing Healthy, Happy Children

“Research shows that what works and is healthy for adults also works well for children, if adjusted to be age-appropriate. Children, like adults, do not suffer from a deficiency of white sugar, white flour, junk food, or processed foods. A growing child as well as an adult is hurt by junk foods and benefited by healthy foods.”
Gabriel Cousens M.D., Conscious Parenting: The Holistic Guide to Raising and Nourishing Healthy, Happy Children

“In our commitment to raise healthy, conscious children and create a healthy world, it is hard to understand how people can choose to spend money for something that not only does not work, but poisons humans and the environment.”
Gabriel Cousens M.D., Conscious Parenting: The Holistic Guide to Raising and Nourishing Healthy, Happy Children

“Dietary patterns are set at a very early age—somewhere between four and eight years old. The research shows that children who have established a healthy diet are healthier in the longer range and less likely to develop cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and obesity.”
Gabriel Cousens M.D., Conscious Parenting: The Holistic Guide to Raising and Nourishing Healthy, Happy Children

“The metaphor of transformation deepens as we consider how a butterfly needs to struggle for its ability to fly. If the chrysalis is broken by someone in an attempt to help free the butterfly, its wings will be shriveled and immobile.”
Gabriel Cousens M.D., Conscious Parenting: The Holistic Guide to Raising and Nourishing Healthy, Happy Children

“Parenting is a gift for adults’ spiritual growth spurts, and it’s a challenge to think of anything else that fills a home with more laughter!”
Gabriel Cousens M.D., Conscious Parenting: The Holistic Guide to Raising and Nourishing Healthy, Happy Children

“As the adults, we are the ones who set the stage for vitality, love, or disharmony in the home. We set ourselves up for one or the other, and our children take their cues from us.”
Gabriel Cousens M.D.

“My purpose is to serve a purpose to humanity; therefore I’ve made it my goal to educate myself to the best of my abilities so that I can convey to my children the importance of knowledge and personal responsibility”
Travis Culliton, Why I love My Prozac

Taylor Caldwell
“But the people in the old country love their children. We have big families, and by the time a child is a year old he knows where he fits in the family and what he should do and what he shouldn't do. He knows his parents love him but that they're not going to stand for any nonsense and tantrums. So he is satisfied and feels safe. American children never feel safe." -The Listener”
Taylor Caldwell, The Listener
