[Quote No.39973] Need Area: Friends > Children
"The best way to teach a child restraint and generosity is to be a model of those qualities yourself. If your child sees that you want a particular item but refrain from buying it, either because it isn't practical or because you can't afford it, he will begin to understand restraint. Likewise, if you donate books or clothing to charity, take him with you to distribute the items to teach him about generosity." - Lawrence Balter
U.S. psychologist and author.

[Quote No.39974] Need Area: Friends > Children
"If we view our children as stupid, naughty, disturbed, or guilty of their misdeeds, they will learn to behold themselves as foolish, faulty, or shameful specimens of humanity. They will regard us as judges from whom they wish to hide, and they will interpret everything we say as further proof of their unworthiness. If we view them as innocent, or at least merely ignorant, they will gain understanding from their experiences, and they will continue to regard us as wise partners." - Polly Berrien Berends

[Quote No.39975] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Never miss an opportunity to allow a child to do something she can and wants to on her own. Sometimes we're in too much of a rush—and she might spill something, or do it wrong. But whenever possible she needs to learn, error by error, lesson by lesson, to do better. And the more she is able to learn by herself the more she gets the message that she's a kid who can." - Polly Berrien Berends

"The parent must not give in to his desire to try to create the child he would like to have, but rather help the child to develop—in his own good time—to the fullest, into what he wishes to be and can be, in line with his natural endowment and as the consequence of his unique life in history." - Bruno Bettelheim

[Quote No.39979] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Recent studies that have investigated maternal satisfaction have found this to be a better prediction of mother-child interaction than work status alone. More important for the overall quality of interaction with their children than simply whether the mother works or not, these studies suggest, is how satisfied the mother is with her role as worker or homemaker. Satisfied women are consistently more warm, involved, playful, stimulating and effective with their children than unsatisfied women." - Alison Clarke-Stewart

[Quote No.39981] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Parents must begin to discover their children as individuals of developing tastes and views and so help them be, and see, themselves as thinking, feeling people. It is far too easy for a middle-years child to absorb an over-simplified picture of himself as a sloppy, unreliable, careless, irresponsible, lazy creature and not much more — an attitude toward himself he will carry far beyond these years [unless nipped in the bud]." - Dorothy H. Cohen

[Quote No.39982] Need Area: Friends > Children
"The frantic search of five-year-olds for friends can thus be seen to forecast the beginnings of a basic shift in the parent-child relationship, a shift which will occur gradually over many long years, and in which a child needs not only the support of child allies engaged in the same struggle but also the understanding of his parents." - Dorothy H. Cohen

[Quote No.39983] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Parents can offer their help by suggesting and locating resources likely to be unfamiliar to children, such as people, books, and materials that can be useful...They can help the children work out schedules for homework, play, and television that minimize the conflicts involved in what to do first. They can offer moral support and encouragement to persist, to try again, to struggle for understanding and mastery. And they can share a child's pleasure in mastery and accomplishment. But they must not do the job for the children." - Dorothy H. Cohen

[Quote No.39984] Need Area: Friends > Children
"The middle years are ones in which children increasingly face conflicts on their own,...

They can be sounding boards and they can probe with the children the consequences of alternative actions." - Dorothy H. Cohen

[Quote No.39985] Need Area: Friends > Children
"The child to be concerned about is the one who is actively unhappy, [in school].... In the long run, a child's emotional development has a far greater impact on his life than his school performance or the curriculum's richness, so it is wise to do everything possible to change a situation in which a child is suffering excessively." - Dorothy H.

[Quote No.39986] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Television programming for children need not be saccharine or insipid in order to give to violence its proper balance in the scheme of things.... But as an endless diet for the sake of excitement and sensation in stories whose plots are vehicles for killing and torture and little more, it is not healthy for young children. Unfamiliar as yet with the full story of human response, they are being misled when they are offered perversion before they have fully learned what is sound." - Dorothy H. Cohen

[Quote No.39987] Need Area: Friends > Children
"You want to prepare your child to think as he gets older. You want him to be critical in his judgments. Teaching a child, by your example, that there's never any room for negotiating or making choices in life may suggest that you expect blind obedience - but it won't help him in the long run to be discriminating in choices and thinking." - Lawrence Balter

That's what keeps you going, and what, in the end, makes it all worthwhile." - Lawrence Balter

[Quote No.40002] Need Area: Friends > Children
"The idea of feminine authority is so deeply embedded in the human subconscious that even after all these centuries of father-right the young child instinctively regards the mother as the supreme authority. He looks upon the father as equal with himself, equally subject to the woman's rule. Children have to be taught to love, honor, and respect the father [and mother equally. To help achieve this both the mother and father should make it clear that they respect the other partner and will consult and come to a joint decision regarding any important decisions that effect the child. This also helps set a good example of parenting relationships that they will carry into their own lives in the future]." - Elizabeth Gould Davis

[Quote No.40004] Need Area: Friends > Children
"One of the best ways that you can help a child who has transgressed is to ask them to fully explain why they chose to do that for your benefit, but more importantly for their own benefit, why that way was unacceptable - often by asking if they would want to live in a world where that was done to them and-or everyone behaved that way, and then explore ways they could have more acceptably met those needs. In this way you help them to gain insight into their own needs, the ability to express those needs, and ways to better handle those needs in socially acceptable ways in the future." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"As a parent, you can play three important roles in teaching your children about sex. As a model for your child, your own comfort level can instill a sense of confidence and trust that will reinforce his or her healthy curiosity about the world. As an information source, you can make sure that curiosity is satisfied with clear and accurate facts about the body, the sexes, and how babies are made. Finally, as a guide to values, you can guarantee that the messages your child receives about sex are invested with the family values you want to instill." - Patricia Farrell

"We find that even the parents who justify spanking to themselves are defensive and embarrassed about it....I suspect that deep in the memory of every parent are the feelings that had attended his own childhood spankings, the feelings of humiliation, of helplessness, of submission through fear. The parent who finds himself spanking his own child cannot dispel the ghosts of his own childhood. [One of the best ways that you can help a child who has transgressed, rather than physical punishment which sets a poor example for how they might treat others in the future - especially those that disappoint or disobey them, is to get them alone and comfortable and ask them to fully explain why they chose to do that, for your benefit, but more importantly for their own benefit, why that way was unacceptable - often by asking if they would want to live in a world where that was done to them and-or everyone behaved that way, and then explore ways they could have more acceptably met those needs. In this way you help them to gain insight into their own needs, the ability to express those needs, and ways to better handle those needs in more socially acceptable ways in the future.]" - Selma H.

"You don't hit a child when you want him to stop hitting. You don't yell at a children to get them to stop yelling. Or spit at a child to indicate that he should not spit.

[One of the best ways that you can help a child who has transgressed is to ask them to fully explain why they chose to do that for your benefit, but more importantly for their own benefit, why that way was unacceptable - often by asking if they would want to live in a world where that was done to them and-or everyone behaved that way, and then explore ways they could have more acceptably met those needs. In this way you help them to gain insight into their own needs, the ability to express those needs, and ways to better handle those needs in more socially acceptable ways in the future.]" - Jeannette W. Galambos
U.S. early childhood education specialist. Quote from 'A Guide to Discipline', ch. 4 (1969).
