  2. To be in your children's memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today.
  3. The smartest advice on raising children is to enjoy them while they are still on your side.
  4. Avenge yourself - Live long enough to be a problem to your children.
  5. The best way to keep kids at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere ~~ and to let the air out of the tires.
  6. The right temperature in a home is maintained by warm hearts, not by hot heads.
  7. Raising a teenager is like nailing Jell-O to a tree.
  8. Any child can tell you that the sole purpose of a middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.
  9. Grandparents are similar to a piece of string ~ handy to have around and easily wrapped around the fingers of grandchildren.
  10. You know the only people in this world who are always sure about the proper way to raise children? Those who've never had any.
