Sometimes, when I’m having a difficult time as a parent and I feel like I’m losing my patience and positive thinking, I just make time to read some parenting quotes. It may seem something not so important, but it helps me regain my motivation and the confidence that what I am doing as a parent is the right thing.
I gathered here some quotes that I really like and I hope you will like them too and you will find in them some nice thoughts to inspire your day!
#1: “To be in your children’s memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today.”
#2: “Motherhood has taught me the meaning of living in the moment and being at peace. Children don’t think about yesterday, and they don’t think about tomorrow. They just exist in the moment.”
#3: “Being a mom has made me so tired. And so happy.”
#4: “Behind every young child who believes in himself is a parent who believed first.”
#5: “Being a mother is not about what you gave up to have a child, but what you’ve gained from having one.”
#6: “Every father should remember that one day his son will follow his example instead of his advice.”
#7: “There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.”
#8: “Too much love never spoils children. Children become spoiled when we substitute presents for presence.”
#9: “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… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”
#10: “When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”
#11: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
#12: “Don’t raise your kids to have more than you had. Raise them to be more than you were.”
