10 Best Parenting Quotes About Children And Play

I love quotes because they are capable of delivering great wisdom in a few words and lines.

So, I’m sharing the top 10 quotes that have inspired me to include more nature and play to make learning natural and fun for my son.

“Only children believe that they are capable of everything.”

Paulo Coelho

“Children don’t need more things. The best toys a child can have is a parent who gets down on the floor and plays with them.”

Bruce Perry

“Children want the same things that we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained, and delighted.”


“The more risks you allow children to take, the better they learn to take care of themselves.”

Roald Dahl

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”


“Don’t just tell children about the world, show them.”

Penny Whitehouse

“Because children grow up, we think that a child’s purpose is to grow up. But a child’s purpose is to be a child.”

Tom Stoppard

“Garden and children need the same things – patience, love and someone who will never give up on them.”

When a child gives you a gift, even if it’s a rock they just picked up, exude gratitude. It may be the only thing they have to give, and they have chosen to give it to you.

Dean Jackson
