Thoughts About Children

"I think a lot of our problems are because people don’t listen to our children. It is not always easy. They’re not always so brilliant that you want to spend hours with them. But it is very important to listen to them." ~Barbara Bush

"Education commences at the mother’s knee, and every word spoken within the hearing of little children tends towards the formation of character."
~ Hosea Ballou

"Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you."
~ Robert Fulghum

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Great thoughts about children! I often think about how important it is to listen to our children, and to realize that they watch us closely. It's a nerve-wracking thought, but by the grace of God, we can be good examples for our children!

    Thanks for the good post!


  2. Hi Lisa,

    You're right. Rearing children is an incredible experience, but it can be difficult. Being a good example is sometimes the hardest part! I'll be over for a visit in a bit. Thanks for talking back!



  3. Yes the watching bit is very important, we have to be aware of little eyes and ears.Thanks for sharing at Good Morning Mondays. Blessings


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
