Parents Quotes

Parents give unconditional love that can never be found elsewhere. They are the ones that bring the child into the world, raise him and take care of him without expecting anything in return. The love they shower is irreplaceable and the extent of their sacrifice in inexplicable. It is often said that the child’s behavior often reflects upon the kind of parents that he or she belongs to. Since both the mom and dad have a crucial role in shaping the child’s personality, it is important that we know what the world thinks about parenthood in general. Read the following famous quotes on parenting to know more.
