To effectively change children's peer relationships - especially undesirable relationships or reputations that have been entrenched for many years - it may not be sufficient to increase children's social competence without also altering their peer and family environments.

Since we're in a small town, it's easy for people to assume they know all about the children, so I tried to approach it as if we knew nothing about the children. That way, the parents can tell us everything we need to know about their child, and there won't be any mistaken assumptions. Some of the parents like to (jokingly) call it a novel, but I think it's important for us to know as much as possible about the children we'll be caring for. (Quote by - Jamie Simmons)

For only as we ourselves, as adults, actually move and have our being in the state of love, can we be appropriate models and guides for our children. What we are teaches the child far more than what we say, so we must be what we want our children to become. (Quote by - Joseph Chilton Pearce)

Recently a young mother asked for advice. What, she wanted to know, was she to do with a 7-year-old who was obstreperous, outspoken, and inconveniently willful? "Keep her," I replied.... The suffragettes refused to be polite in demanding what they wanted or grateful for getting what they deserved. Works for me. (Quote by - Anna Quindlen)

Typing is an essential skill, but it can be painful. Some children just don't know where the letters are. Typing a three-page story, when they have to spend minutes hunting for every letter, can take forever. Yet we tend to assume that children can type, partly because quite a lot of us know where quite a lot of the letters are, so we assume that children do, too. (Quote by - Susan Mitchell)

A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child. (Quote by - Knights of Pythagoras)

What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to.
