Our Favorite Quotes

“It takes children to raise a village.”
Reverend Dr. Michael Beckwith

“Power is of two kinds: One is obtained by fear of punishment and the other by the art of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent than the one derived from fear of punishment.”

“Child of mine– I will never do for you that which I know you can do for yourself. I will never rob you of an opportunity to show yourself your ability and talent. I will see you at all times as the capable, effective, powerful creator that you have come forth to be. And I will stand back as your most avid cheering section. But, I will not do for you that which you have intended to do for yourself. Anything you need from me– ask. I’m always here to compliment or to assist, I am here to encourage your role, not to justify my experience through you.”

“If you talk to your children, you can help them to keep their lives together. If you talk to them skillfully you can help them to build future dreams.”
Jim Rohn

“Without awareness you do not have choice, you just react. Awareness gives you the ability to see things more clearly and choose from a larger perspective or vantage point.”
Reverend Dr. Michael Beckwith

“The most significant thing for a parent to contribute to anyone is their own connection and their own stability. An effective parent is a happy parent. An effective parent is a parent who laughs easily and often, and who doesn’t take things too seriously.”
Abraham Hicks

“Nature does not demand that we be perfect. It requires only that we grow.”
Josh Liebman

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.”
Victor Frankl

“Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing.”
Jim Rohn

The greatest act parents can learn is the act of “seeing” what is going on “inside” their child and then “lovingly responding” to that, instead of reacting to the outward behavior.
