Every father should remember that one day his son will follow his example instead of his advice.
I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection. Freud
“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway...let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.” Joybell
My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me. Jim Valvano
A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.
Parents can tell but never teach, unless they practice what they preach. Arnold Glasgow
Children learn to smile from their parents.
How true Daddy's words were when he said: "All children must look after their own upbringing." Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands. Anne Frank
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
