parents


Random quote of the day:

“Most of our earliest programming comes from our parents. Whether we like it or realize it, we absorb their habits and beliefs at an age when we are under their control and unable to do much about it. Their concerns and values act on us for the better part of our lives, and unless we redefine ourselves and form our own beliefs, we continue to run our parents’ programs in our thoughts and actions.”

—Famous Amos, Watermelon Magic

Random quote of the day:

“Parenting is a serious responsibility. It is the hardest job in the world to do, yet it’s the easiest job to get—no education, no training, no experience with kids (of any age), no test, no interviews, no probation period, no periodic evaluations and hardly any risk of being fired.”

—Jerry Steinberg, “License to Parent,” Founder of No Kidding!
