Parents And Adult Children quotes by Max Redford
#1. If it's something you can't say in front of your parents then it's probably worth saying. #Quote by Max Redford
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Alice Clayton
#2. But my parents were there when I needed them, always there. The idea that I would someday have to walk the earth without their anchor and misguided guidance made me wince ... #Quote by Alice Clayton
Parents And Adult Children quotes by David Duchovny
#3. He wanted to argue like this forever. This was better than nothing. There was no exhausting his anger at his father, and every word, however well intentioned or intentionally barbed, was a pull at a scab on his bloody heart. It was too late for any of this. There could ultimately be no healing. Marty had terminal cancer, and so did the two men have a cancer between them. They were terminal together, as father and son. They remained, momentarily exhausted, but it was really only that quiet between lightning and thunder as sound lags behind speed. The lightning had cracked the ground already, you just hadn't heard it yet. #Quote by David Duchovny
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Rebecca West
#4. She understood children, and knew that they were adults handicapped by a humiliating disguise and had their adult qualities within them. #Quote by Rebecca West
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Masanobu Fukuoka
#5. The person who can most easily take up natural agriculture is the one who doesn't have any of the common adult obstructing blocks of desire, philosophy, or religion ... the person who has the mind and heart of a child. One must simply know nature ... real nature, not the one we think we know! #Quote by Masanobu Fukuoka
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Sherman Alexie
#6. Self-Exam

Dear audience, please stand if you were raised
By a terrible mother. Okay, okay,

Approximately half of you. So I'd say
That terrible mothers are commonplace.

Just like terrible fathers. So let's mourn
For the children who never knew childhood.

Our grief is justified. Our anger is good.
I won't blame children for childish scorn.

But there comes a day when a broken child
Becomes an adult. On that day, you'll need

To choose between the domestic and wild.
You'll need to escalate war or declare peace.

I tell you this because I'm the kid, mother-stung,
Who became a terrible adult son.

And I'm to blame for that. I made that mess.
Because I am the Amateur of Forgiveness. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Jean-Pierre Jeunet
#7. When I was a kid, I used to escape from my family with my imagination, and I kept this spirit into my adult life. This doesn't always happen. All children have imagination, but for some it doesn't carry over. #Quote by Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#8. One of the things that I really like about young adult fiction is that you can explore the relationships between teens and their parents. I definitely think that teens are a product of their parents. You either end up just like them or you consciously make the decision to be unlike them. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Parents And Adult Children quotes by A Starry Eyed April
#9. I love

how grown children
will still

their mothers

It is
as though,

their eyes
have met
the cascading

and golden
of every

their souls

to the beat
of their
and care. #Quote by A Starry Eyed April
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Christopher Paul Curtis
#10. That was Bud Caldwell's Rules and Things to Have a Funner LIfe and Make a Better Liar Out of Yourself Number 83 ... If a Adult Tells You Not to Worry, and You Weren't Worried Before, You Better Hurry Up and Start 'Cause You're Already Running Late. #Quote by Christopher Paul Curtis
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Emery Lord
#11. You know, some people act like every kid is entitled to two responsible, loving parents. I don't feel like that's a given. We're born alone, and we die alone. If you get an adult who's genuinely there for you, that's pretty lucky. #Quote by Emery Lord
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Norton Juster
#12. Would it be possible for me to see something from up there?" asked Milo politely.
"You could," said Alec, "but only if you try very hard to look at things as an adult does."
Milo tried as hard as he could, and, as he did, his feet floated slowly off the ground until he was standing in the air next to Alex Bings. He looked around very quickly and, an instant later, crashed back down to the earth again.
"Interesting, wasn't it?" asked Alex.
"Yes, it was," agreed Milo, rubbing his head and dusting himself off, "but I think I'll continue to see things as a child. It's not so far to fall. #Quote by Norton Juster
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Thomas Moore
#13. An eternal question about children is, how should we educate them? Politicians and educators consider more school days in a year, more science and math, the use of computers and other technology in the classroom, more exams and tests, more certification for teachers, and less money for art. All of these responses come from the place where we want to make the child into the best adult possible, not in the ancient Greek sense of virtuous and wise, but in the sense of one who is an efficient part of the machinery of society. But on all these counts, soul is neglected. #Quote by Thomas Moore
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Brian Lindstrom
#14. I knew as a young boy that addiction and alcoholism afflict people - good, loving people - in profound ways, and that some people - usually from those rare "normal" families that I longed for as a child and as an adult wonder if they even exist - didn't understand this and sort of looked down their noses at people suffering with addiction. #Quote by Brian Lindstrom
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Steven Biko
#15. The system concedes nothing without demand, for it formulates its very method of operation on the basis that the ignorant will learn to know, the child will grow into an adult and therefore demands will begin to be made. It gears itself to resist demands in whatever way it sees fit. #Quote by Steven Biko
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Aziz Ansari
#16. Now most young people spend their twenties and thirties in another stage of life, where they go to university, start a career, and experience being an adult outside of their parents' home before marriage. #Quote by Aziz Ansari
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#17. Every child matures, which is both a blessing and a damn shame. Children can imagine worlds that never exist, worlds far more interesting and consoling than an adult knows. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Parents And Adult Children quotes by John Grant
#18. All any grownup expects of an adolescent is that he act like an adult and be satisfied to be treated like a child. #Quote by John Grant
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Malorie Blackman
#19. There is a saying: 'The child is parent to the adult', which means whatever happens to you as a child or teenager affects the adult you become. You are forged in your history. And fiction is an incredibly important force in shaping children, and that's why fiction needs to be diverse. #Quote by Malorie Blackman
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Matthew J. Friedman
#20. Although psychoanalysts, including Freud, tended to acknowledge sexual trauma as tragic and harmful (Freud, 1905b, 1917), the subject seems to have been too awful to consider seriously in civilized company. One notable exception, Sandor Ferenczi, presented a paper entitled "Confusion of Tongues between the Adult and the Child: The Language of Tenderness and of Passion" (1955), to the Psychoanalytic Congress in 1932. In this presentation he talked about the helplessness of the child when confronted with an adult who uses the child's vulnerability to gain sexual gratification. Ferenczi talked with more eloquence than any psychiatrist before him about the helplessness and terror experienced by children who were victims of interpersonal violence, and he introduced the critical concept that the predominant defense available to children so traumatized is "identification with aggressor." The response of the psychoanalytic community seems to have been one of embarrassment, and the paper was not published in English until 1949, 17 years after Ferenczi's death (Masson, 1984). #Quote by Matthew J. Friedman
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#21. Though men in their hundreds of thousands had tried their hardest to disfigure that little corner of the earth where they had crowded themselves together, paving the ground with stones so that nothing could grow, weeding out every blade of vegetation, filling the air with the fumes of coal and gas, cutting down trees and driving away every beast and every bird -- spring, however, was still spring, even in the town. The sun shone warm, the grass, wherever it had not been scraped away, revived and showed green not only on the narrow strips of lawn on the boulevards but between the paving-stones as well, and the birches, the poplars and the wild cherry-trees were unfolding their sticky, fragrant leaves, and the swelling buds were bursting on the lime trees; the jackdaws, the sparrows and the pigeons were cheerfully getting their nests ready for the spring, and the flies, warmed by the sunshine, buzzed gaily along the walls. All were happy -- plants, birds, insects and children. But grown-up people -- adult men and women -- never left off cheating and tormenting themselves and one another. It was not this spring morning which they considered sacred and important, not the beauty of God's world, given to all creatures to enjoy -- a beauty which inclines the heart to peace, to harmony and to love. No, what they considered sacred and important were their own devices for wielding power over each other. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Kimberlee Roth
#22. Parentified children learn to take responsibility for themselves and others early on. They tend to fade into the woodwork and let others take center stage. This extends into adulthood - adult children may put others' needs before their own. They may have difficulty accepting care and attention. #Quote by Kimberlee Roth
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Albert Sabin
#23. I have studied the effects of our new lots of polio vaccine in 100 adult volunteers and during the next few days shall give it to my wife and 2 children as well as to our neighbors and their children. #Quote by Albert Sabin
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Cassandra Clare
#24. Why are we bringing him along, again?" Will inquired, of the world in general as well as his sister.
Cecily put her hands on her hips. "Why are you bringing Tessa?"
"Because Tessa and I are going to be married," Will said, and Tessa smiled; the way that Will's little sister could ruffle his feathers like no one else was still amusing to her.
"Well, Gabriel and I might well be married," Cecily said. "Someday."
Gabriel made a choking noise, and turned an alarming shade of purple.
Will threw up his hands. "You can't be married Cecily! You're only fifteen! When I get married, I'll be eighteen! An adult!"
Cecily did not look impressed. "We may have a long engagement," she said. "But I cannot see why you are counseling me to marry a man my parents have never met."
Will sputtered. "I am not counseling you to marry a man your parents have never met!"
"Then we are in agreement. Gabriel must meet Mam and Dad. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Gwenn Wright
#25. Wicked eyes are not a good prospect for seminary boys. They want a gentle, soft sort of wife, not a wife who looks as though she may sprout wings and carry off the young children of the village. ~Maria "Smythe #Quote by Gwenn Wright
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Susan Cain
#26. Joyce has also come to appreciate Isabel's sensitive ways. "Isabel is an old soul," she says. "You forget that she's only a child. When I talk to her, I'm not tempted to use that special tone of voice that people reserve for children, and I don't adapt my vocabulary. I talk to her the way I would to any adult. She's very sensitive, very caring. She worries about other people's well-being. She can be easily overwhelmed, but all these things go together and I love this about my daughter. #Quote by Susan Cain
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Norman Podhoretz
#27. Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on the disciplined adult intelligence. #Quote by Norman Podhoretz
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Billy Graham
#28. Before the seventeenth century, a child passed directly into the adult world between the ages of five and seven ... then came the industrial revolution ... so the child-centered home was born. #Quote by Billy Graham
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Thomas H. Lee
#29. Arteriosclerosis, removing people from active life when the period of maximum fertility has passed, is of benefit to the young if it relieves them of the care of parents, or brings them an inheritance as they enter adult life. . . . Any attempts to eradicate such a disease from the urban population will be frustrated by natural selection and the survival of more grandchildren in families with few grandparents. Those best fitted to survive in a world growing more urban are those who cease to require support as soon as their roles as parents have been completed. Atherosclerosis and hypertension are now the chief factors in determining that we do not overstay our allotted span of life too long. #Quote by Thomas H. Lee
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Carl Jung
#30. The little world of childhood with its familiar surroundings is a model of the greater world. The more intensively the family has stamped its character upon the child, the more it will tend to feel and see its earlier miniature world again in the bigger world of adult life. Naturally this is not a conscious, intellectual process. #Quote by Carl Jung
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Ian McEwan
#31. This is the pain-pleasure of having newly adult children; they're innocent and ruthless in forgetting their sweet old dependence. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Magda Gerber
#32. I have spent my adult life trying to figure out why parents and society put themselves into a race
what's the hurry? I keep trying to convey the pleasure every parent and teacher could feel while observing, appreciating and enjoying what the infant is doing. This attitude would change our educational climate from worry to joy. #Quote by Magda Gerber
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Christian Boltanski
#33. There are very few times in creation in your life. One time is when you become an adult, one time is when your parents die, and the other time is when you are very old. #Quote by Christian Boltanski
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Ann Patchett
#34. You see an absolutely brilliant film later, as an adult, and you walk out thinking about what to have for dinner. Whereas something like Jaws winds up having a huge effect on me. If only my parents had been taking me to Kurosawa films when I was eight, but no. #Quote by Ann Patchett
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
#35. I am not only the person who wrote and sold a novel while raising a houseful of biological and foster children; I am also the person who wrote a horrific young adult novel that never sold and gave up on a foster child I couldn't handle - an experience that still haunts me. #Quote by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Judy Blume
#36. In a New York Post interview, Judy Blume, author of young-adult fiction, gave this advice on getting your kids to read:
"Moms come up to me at book signings and describe how they're telling their daughters, 'These were my favorite books,' " she says. "I say, 'Quit it! That's the biggest turnoff!'
"You want to get them to read them, leave them around the house and every so often, say, 'You're not ready to read this yet.' #Quote by Judy Blume
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Richard Schmid
#37. All great art originates from the innocent child within us expressing itself through the wisdom, experience and skill of an adult. #Quote by Richard Schmid
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Ellie Elisabeth
#38. That was the funny thing. What happened to John would pass for his classmates, but for John it was a long challenging road ahead of him. Who knew where he would be sent, maybe a juvenile detention center? He might keep in touch with a few friends if his parents let him, but he would never return to Wakefield High. His peers had no clue the journey ahead of him, that his life was changed forever.
And they had no idea what lay ahead for Lilly. No one knew she had been given a task by the Archangels to fight a war against pure evil. They had no idea that Lilly would spend most of her free time not training for a marathon, but training to kill demons. John and Lilly were not all too different. #Quote by Ellie Elisabeth
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Alison Miller
#39. The first generation of therapists doing this work were told by their clients that the one massive cult was everywhere, knew everything, had access to state-of-the-art technology, and was willing to kill both clients and therapists to stop the information from getting out." []
"The reality is that even before stories of ritual abuse and mind control began coming out to therapists, the groups had agreed on what kind of disinformation to spread, so that clients would be afraid to tell their therapists what had happened to them, and therapists would be afraid to work with these clients." [ ]
"We know that there is not one massive Satanic cult, but many different interrelated groups, including religious, military/political, and organized crime, using mind control on children and adult survivors. We know that there are effective treatments. We know that many of the paralyzing beliefs our clients lived by are the results of lies and tricks perpetrated by their abusers. #Quote by Alison Miller
Parents And Adult Children quotes by K.M. Soehnlein
#40. It's about transitioning from adolescence, when you live together with parents and see each other every day, to the era when you don't live together and start to grow apart and have to figure out how you're going to have an adult relationship. #Quote by K.M. Soehnlein
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Michelle Tea
#41. It is so hard for a queer person to become an adult. Deprived of the markers of life's passage, they lolled about in a neverland dreamworld. They didn't get married. They didn't have children. They didn't buy homes or have job-jobs. The best that could be aimed for was an academic placement and a lover who eventually tired of pansexual sport-fucking and settled down with you to raise a rescue animal in a rent-controlled apartment. #Quote by Michelle Tea
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Seth Roberts
#42. The child plays at being an adult long before he is one, and so you can play with more desirable beliefs while you are still growing into that more beneficial picture. #Quote by Seth Roberts
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#43. I explained that when our gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender friends aren't welcome at the table, then we don't feel welcome either, and that not every young adult gets married or has children, so we need to stop building our churches around categories and start building them around people. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Michelle Korenfeld
#44. Grow to be a creative adult, and you'll develop and inspire others. Grow to be a thinker and you'll be aware of the animlas, the plants, and the fascinating veriety of people in our world. #Quote by Michelle Korenfeld
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#45. My brother and I had a really privileged relationship with my parents ... They treated us like adults. #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Paul R. Ehrlich
#46. Your children should have it impressed upon them that their adult life-style will bear very little resemblance to yours and that they should now be acquiring knowledge, skills, values, and tastes that will sustain them in less materially affluent circumstances. On the other hand, the fresh insights and imaginations of your children may help you find a viable future while there's still time. #Quote by Paul R. Ehrlich
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Tyler Blackburn
#47. My interests lie in nurturing children. That's part of the reason why the bullying thing has become an aspect of my life. I was bullied a lot growing up. I know firsthand the amount of life that is sucked out of you every time that happens, and how it affected me as a young adult. #Quote by Tyler Blackburn
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Jane Ridley
#48. To most of us, adulthood means being able to earn a living, possess a home, get married and rear children, and this implies having autonomy or control over one's life. In the 19th century, becoming an adult was celebrated as a liberation from paternal authority. Today we regard it more as a time of regret and stagnation. #Quote by Jane Ridley
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Sue Klebold
#49. A 2001 study of adolescent school shooters, prompted in part by the massacre at Columbine High School, resulted in two interesting findings. The first is that 25 percent of the thirty-four teenage shooters they looked at participated in pairs. This is different from adult rampage killers, who most often act alone. Dr. Reid Meloy, a forensic psychologist and expert on targeted violence and threat assessment, authored the study. He told me that these deadly dyads mean it's absolutely critical for parents to pay attention to the dynamics between kids and their friends. The second finding from his study: typically, one of the two kids was a psychopath, and the other one suggestible, dependent, and depressed. #Quote by Sue Klebold
Parents And Adult Children quotes by Owen Jones
#50. Being born into a prosperous middle-class family typically endows you with a safety net for life. If you are not naturally very bright, you are still likely to go far and, at the very least, will never experience poverty as an adult. A good education compounded by your parents' 'cultural capital', financial support and networks will always see you through. If you are a bright child born into a working-class family, you do not have any of these things. The odds are that you will not be better off than your parents. #Quote by Owen Jones
