“Respect your children. Treat them like the person you most admire on earth. I really mean that as a way of life. If you treat your children with respect then they will learn to respect themselves. I can’t think of a better thing to let your kid out into the world with than self-respect. How your child feels about him or herself will dictate how they allow themselves to be treated by other people. I want my [children] to feel empowered. That’s the most important thing. I think as a mom it’s important to teach your children that they’re extraordinary, powerful beings. Your job is to keep the path clear so there is nothing they can trip up on.”

-Thandie Newton, actress and mother of daughters Ripley, 16, and Nico, 12, and son Booker, 2, Hollywood Life, 2010.
