Parenting Quote: Parenting Quotes that Inspire The Wise Parent Within

Our parenting quote collection will help give birth to your inner wisdom. Children depend on and look up to us, so they need us to be the best role models we can be. Some of the quotations below are about newborns which will help you remember what it felt like to see and hold your child for the very first time. By remembering, you will renew your commitment to your precious child—that bundle of innocence, of purity, of hope and blessed joy.

Let the wisdom in these words wake you up to the nature of your child. Cherish and nurture it and your child will grow into an adult who cherishes and nurtures others and gives his special gifts to the world. There is no greater gift that a parent can give a child.
