“If you want to know what your child is doing, look at their friends, they wouldn't be friends with them if they weren't doing the same things.”
Catie Hartsfield, The Year Of The Cicadas

“Be careful of how you discuss money in front of your children. Never speak of household finances in terms of lack or scarcity in front of your kids. Only speak of household finances in terms of goals and wealth in front of your kids. Your discussions about money will either enrich them with wealth consciousness or cripple them with poverty consciousness.”
Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr, The Wealth Reference Guide: An American Classic

“I believe that parents who love their children do everything for them with love, even discipline.”
Ellen J. Barrier, How to Trust God When All Other Resources Have Failed

“Children are imprinted with the lessons of life from their earliest years. They learn from their parents how to give and receive love. It is the necessary lesson which they must learn if they are to do more than exist in an emotional vacuum inhabited only by themselves.”
Charlotte Lamb, Crescendo

“ENJOY LIFE! Can’t go wrong with that motto, I think.

No matter what activity one engages in, from the simple to the complex, from the mundane to the exciting, it is very worthwhile to keep a non-judgmental mindset.

Enjoy every experience for what it is—do not compare it to prior experiences, nor set it up against your expectations, or the expectations of others.

In this fashion, no matter what experience unfolds, it will be appreciated.

The key as a parent is to encourage your offspring to adopt a like mindset. As well, as a parent, do not concern yourself whether your child is getting “full-value” for your money.”

“I am a proud father in the fulfillment I feel when I provide guidance to my son. We have tremendous sharing together, which I now share in words with you today, with only a humble choice of adjectives to truly describe the emotions I feel arising from my relationship with my son.

I imagine each of us has relationships of which we can be proud.”
Rob Kozak

“I would encourage any absentee fathers to consider, for the sake of their children, the following:
– maintain the bond of love;
– seek the silver lining;
– provide guidance as best you can;
– and have fun together!

These rewards of fatherhood are entirely in YOUR hands.”
Rob Kozak, Finding Fatherhood

Rob Kozak
“Silver linings abound: I always knew I loved my son, but you certainly get a “perspective-check” when you go through a parting like that. His despair is tough to bear witness to, but reinforces how dearly he loves me. It strengthens my already tough resolve to remain as a positive influence in his life, despite the geographic distance between us.”
Rob Kozak, Finding Fatherhood

“You know what is so cool, Jenna?"
"What's that, my little man?"
"My friends? All their dads let them win all the time. Board games, cards, video games, sports. My dad? He always tries his hardest because he says he wants me to try my hardest, and because he only wants me to know what it feels like to really win for real, and because he says the only thing better in the world than a winner is a gracious loser."
I am gobsmacked. First of all, the fact that Noah appreciates the fact that his dad has never let him win all these years, and second, that it was actually a conscientious parenting decision as opposed to a juvenile need to win that drives Wayne's actions.
"Yeah, I bet it feels really good to know that you won even though he was trying his hardest to beat you." I hope no one else can see the lightbulb over my head right now.
"It. Is. AWESOME.”
Stacey Ballis, Out to Lunch
