    Children are wonderful things.

    I love to have children around, they revitalize my spirit and renew my passion for life. Children remind you that life is supposed to be fun.

    Unfortunately, children can be ruined by mistreatment, abuse, neglect, or poor example.

    The best thing about children, is that they are little balls of clay. You can mold them into whatever you wish.

    The worst thing about children, is that they are little balls of clay. You can really make a mess out of them.

    A properly raised child is a joy. A poorly raised child is a nightmare.

    Any person who would ruin a child, should not be allowed near a child. Regrettably, children are expendable to many.

    We require a license to drive a motor vehicle, to operate a boat, to fly an aircraft, to marry, to operate a business, to sell liquor, to practice medicine, to practice law, to build homes, to hunt and fish, to install software… but there is no license to become a parent. Volumes are spoken about people and societies by where their priorities lie. What does this say about us?

    Every person with a child has a responsibility. The greatest responsibility there is… care for the future.

    Children are wonderful.

    Make an effort, and try not to mess them up.
