"On Children" - what Kahlil Gibran has to say...
The Prophet Chapter 3 - On Children
And a woman who held
a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children. And he said:
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's
longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though
they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You give them your love but
not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies
but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which
you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows
are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness: For even as He loves the
arrow that flies so He loves also the bow that is stable.
But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever. So
I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.
By A. A. Milne.
family poems - what William Wordsworth has to say...
My heart leaps up
when I behold A Rainbow in the sky: So
was it when my life began; So is it now I am a Man; So be it when I shall
grow old, Or let me die! The Child
is Father of the Man; And I could wish my days to be Bound each to each
by natural piety
by William Wordsworth

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
