A Quote by Gavin De Becker on niceness, sociology, and parenting

We must learn and then teach our children that niceness does not equal goodness. Niceness is a decision, a strategy of social interaction; it is not a character trait. People seeking to control others almost always present the image of a nice person in the beginning.

A Quote by Harper Lee on children, parenting, and honesty

(as spoken by Atticus Finch)

When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness' sake.  But don't make a production of it. Children are children, but they can spot an evasion quicker than adults, and evasion simply muddles 'em.

A Quote by Sri Aurobindo on parenting and self-improvement

A woman has the greatest opportunity to provide the best outcome for a baby and its potentialities. Not only by having a conscious and definite will to form the child accordingly to the highest ideal she can conceive, but first and foremost having the aspiration to work on herself.
