Favorite Quotes: “It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings.” –Ann Landers
“Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.” —Catherine M. Wallace
