10 Quotes Made by children

Our children have many great things to tell us, and it all comes straight from their hearts, "unfiltered". I have taken note of the things my children have said over
the years. In this hub I present my 10 favorites. Children ask a great many questions, but they aren’t always easy to answer…...

The quotes in this hub are all made by my children at various ages. I think this is worth sharing because it shows some of how much children reflect on things. It also shows how they come to their own conclusions. Children’s lives are often easy and simple, and their questions can and should give us something to reflect over.

  1. "If Jesus was born in Christmas and died during Easter, what did he do when it was winter?"
  2. "Why do that girl show her panties? Can't she afford a skirt?" This was when we saw a band singing on TV where the girl had a very short dress.
  3. "Mum, why do you have to clean up, it will be all messed up again in an hour." Said by my youngest when she was 6 years old and she did not want me to clean up.
  4. "If you allow me to go down town with my friends, I promise that I will take my responsibility!" Said by my oldest when at age 10.
  5. "Working is awesome, you are allowed to paint, to staple and to crawl on the floor." Said my youngest when she was 6 years old after spending a day at my office...
  6. "Dad always cook food that we don't like, why doesn't he understand that?"
  7. "Mam can you help me work at my stable when I grow up? I need someone to give lectures to children when they come to ride the horses. I don't know how to do it on my own."
  8. "When I die, I want to be buried with my cuddly toy."
  9. "Mum; don't sing in the car when my friends ride with us. It is only when we are alone that I think it sounds funny!"
  10. "I am going to a fart meeting!"

Give you attention to what your children say

I recommend you to write down some of the wonderful thoughts they share with you. Else it's easy to forget as time goes by. These small quotes will later be a valuable memory for you and your children,

Their thoughts and words don’t pass through the "grown up filter", which is incredibly refreshing. We are able to hear the most fantastic things from our children, so listen to them and enjoy!

      These are interesting and funny quotes, kerlund74. I love the fact that you encourage other parents to record the things that their children say! The record will be a lovely reminder of their children's childhood.

      Part of the charm of children is that they say what ever is one their mind and sometimes what they say is wise beyond their years. I am a retired teacher and believe me, "out of the mouth of babes," is really true. Sometimes they can show just how hypocritical adults are. I enjoyed reading this and you make a good point: Listen to the children!

      What a treat these quotes are. Pure and innocent as children are. All made without any twists and turns.

      I wish I had noted what my children had said when they were kids. I hardly remember them.

      Very nice. Kids have a way of being very honest, especially at around the 5 or 6 years old time frame. My sons have always cracked me up with little things they say and do. One day we were in the car in a parking lot and everyone was moving slow and it was frustrating trying to move around in there - and my 4 year old son from the back seat groans and says "come ON drive your car already! to the people in front of us - I laughed so hard.
