A Quote by Richard Hughes on parents and children

Parents, finding that they see through their child in so many places the child does not know of, seldom realize that, if there is some point the child really gives his mind to hiding, their chances are nil.

A Quote by Walter Elias "Walt" Disney on walt disney, disney, children, and good and evil

I don't believe in playing down to children, either in life or in motion pictures. I didn't treat my own youngsters like fragile flowers, and I think no parent should.
Children are people, and they should have to reach to learn about things, to understand things, just as adults have to reach if they want to grow in mental stature. Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows. Most things are good, and they are the strongest things; but there are evil things too, and you are not doing a child a favor by trying to shield him from reality. The important thing is to teach a child that good can always triumph over evil, and that is what our pictures attempt to do.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on children, fairy tales, and genius

If you want your children to be brilliant, read them fairly tales.
If you want them to be geniuses, read them more fairy tales.

A Quote by Bill Vaughan on children, kids, fun, and playfulness

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.

A Quote by Robert F Kennedy, Jr. on money, nature, environmentalism, environment, culture, children, spirituality, happiness, and needs

"We protect nature not for nature's sake but for our own sake because it's the infrastructure of our communities, and if we want to meet the obligations of our civilization and our culture which are to create communities for our children that provide them with the same opportunities for dignity and enrichment as the communities that our
parents gave us, we've got to start by protecting that infrastructure; the air that we breathe, the water that we drink, the landscapes that enrich us. We're not protecting nature for nature's sake. We're protecting it because it enriches us, yes, it enriches our economy and we ignore that at our peril. But it is also enriching us aesthetically, recreationally, culturally, historically and spiritually. Human beings have other appetites besides money. And if
we don't feed them, we're not going to grow up…we're not going to become the kind of beings that our creator intended us to become."

A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on economics, children, health, violence, nuclear weapons, nature, and values

Too much and too long, we seem to have surrendered community excellence and community values in the mere accumulation of material things. Our gross national product...if we should judge American by that - counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage. It counts special locks for our doors and the jails for those who break them. It counts the destruction of our redwoods and the loss of our natural wonder in chaotic sprawl. It counts napalm and the cost of a nuclear warhead, and armored cars for police who fight riots in our streets. It counts Whitman's rifle and Speck's knife, and the television programs which glorify violence in order to sell toys to our children.

Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education, or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages; the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials. It measures neither our wit nor our courage; neither our wisdom nor our learning; neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country; it measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile. And it tells us everything about America except why we are proud that we are Americans.

Robert F. Kennedy (1925 - 1968)

A Quote by Joel Fuhrman on children, pregnancy, health, nutrition, plant-based, vegan, and vegetarian

Every day a parent asks, "When is your pediatric nutrition book coming out?"  Parents are eager for information.  They don't know what to feed their kids.  They know that the diet of their household and of their community are unhealthy, but they don't know what to do.  They are stumped because they want to make changes, but they don't know how to get their kids to like healthy foods.  This book has the answers.  Not only will it explain what a healthy diet is, it will show you how to implement the best diet for your children in such a way that they will love it, eat it, and adopt a healthy approach to nutrition that will last a lifetime.

American children are the heaviest worldwide, and they are getting heavier at a faster rate than other children around the globe.  This spread of obesity foreshadows an explosion in degenerative diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer waiting to erupt in our children's future.  Together we can stop this tragedy from ever happening.
