The foundation needs to be built at an early age, and needs to keep being built throughout the child s early adolescence.
- It has been said that “It takes a village” to raise a child. I guess the trick would be to find a village of people you would want to help you to raise your children.

- Call me Sybil. I have two personalities. One is the helpless, quivering mass that men like to call ?vulnerable? and ?female? and the other is pure Paige. The latter is in your face, pull the bootstraps up and take the bull by the horns. This duality has occurred by necessity, not by choice.
- Women are often most sensitive to changes in the environment because they are in closest contact with the home and the land; they are the first line of defense. Women represent a huge consumer market: They control over 80% of consumer spending in the United States.
