Kim and Dean Hopper sing a song called the Little Girl in Our Little Girls Room. Many of the videos labeled grandchildren I make, are about how fast kids grow up. I think it is something most do not realize until its too late or people think it only happens to other people? Being a grandparent when you don't see your grandkids every day- sometimes it is a shock how fast they have grown. For some, viewing this video will bring a tear to your eyes, for others, maybe you will be reminded to take time with your child just a bit more today. Someone once said; "In bringing up children, spend on them half as much money and twice as much time."
You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back.
Always kiss your children goodnight - even if they're already asleep.
When you have brought up kids, there are memories you store directly in your tear ducts.
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.
Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.
If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.
What a child doesn't receive he can seldom later give.
If you want your children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others.
These are my daughters, I suppose.
But where in the world did the children vanish?
The trouble with being a parent is that by the time you are experienced, you are unemployed.
