[Quote No.40020] Need Area: Friends > Children
"A new world of complex relationships and feelings opens up when the peer group takes its place alongside the family as the emotional focus of the child's life. Early peer relationships contribute significantly to the child's ability to participate in a group (and in that sense, society), deal with competition and disappointment, enjoy the intimacy of friendships, and intuitively understand social relationships as they play out at school, in the neighborhood, and later in the workplace and adult family." - Stanley I. Greenspan
U.S. clinical professor of psychiatry, behavioral sciences, pediatrics and author. Quote from 'Playground Politics', afterword (1993).

[Quote No.40021] Need Area: Friends > Children
"In everything from athletic ability to popularity to looks, brains, and clothes, children [just like adults] rank themselves against others. At this age [7 and 8], children can tell you with amazing accuracy who has the coolest clothes, who tells the biggest lies, who is the best reader, who runs the fastest, and who is the most popular boy in the third grade. [How children learn to happily cope with or change these rankings is just another lifeskill lesson same as it is for all adults.]" - Stanley I. Greenspan
U.S. child psychiatrist and author. Quote from 'Playground Politics', ch. 1 (1993).

"Children who are not spoken to by live and responsive adults will not learn to speak properly. Children who are not answered will stop asking questions. They will become incurious. And children who are not told stories and who are not read to will have few reasons for wanting to learn to read." - Gail Haley

[Quote No.40024] Need Area: Friends > Children
"If you tell children they are bad, that's what they believe they are — and that's probably what they will become. [Therefore it is best to say the action is bad or unacceptable, but not the person themselves, lest we help create a bad self-image in their minds that then informs their choices in life.] Share Louise Hart (20th century), Read more at http://quotes.dictionary.com/If_you_tell_children_they_are_bad_thats#0r8YCvCPBrFdJ3Wt.99" - Louise Hart

[Quote No.40025] Need Area: Friends > Children
"You must not feel too anxious about the little folks [children] with you.... Their little peculiarities, which with your older judgment do not seem favorable, will gradually disappear as they get older. It is best to overlook most things, and not be too solicitous about perfection." - Rutherford Birchard Hayes
(1822–1893), U.S. president. Quote from 'Diary and Letters of Rutherford Birchard Hayes: Nineteenth President of the United States', vol. I, p. 509, ed. Charles Richard Williams, The Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society, 5 vols. (1922-1926), Hayes to Sophia Birchard Hayes (January 21, 1857). Written to his mother who, following the death of his sister, was caring for her children.

"[Research has found that] ... parents whose children were 'baby altruists' by two years firmly prohibited any child aggression against others. Adults not only restated their rule against hitting, for example, but they let the little one know that they would not tolerate the child hurting another." - Alice Sterling Honig

[Quote No.40029] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Experts generally agree that taking all opportunities to read books and other material aloud to children is the best preparation for their learning to read. The pleasures of being read to are far more likely to strengthen a child's desire to learn to read than are repetitions of sounds, alphabet drills, and deciphering uninteresting words." - Lilian G. Katz

[Quote No.40031] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Television [and now computers] thus illustrates the mixed blessings of technological change in ...society. It is a new medium, promising extraordinary benefits: great educational potential, a broadening of experience, enrichment of daily life, entertainment [and] for all. But it teaches children the uses of violence, offers material consumption as the answer to life's problems, sells harmful products, habituates viewers to constant stimulation, and undermines family interaction and other forms of learning such as play and reading." - Kenneth Keniston

[Quote No.40033] Need Area: Friends > Children
"A two-week-old infant cries an average of one and a half hours every day. This increases to approximately three hours per day when the child is about six weeks old. By the time children are twelve weeks old, their daily crying has decreased dramatically and averages less than one hour. This same basic pattern of crying is present among children from a wide range of cultures throughout the world. It appears to be wired into the nervous system of our species." - Lawrence Kutner

"All parents occasionally have ambivalent feelings toward their children. We love our kids, but there are times when we don't really like them, or at least we can't stand what our children are doing. But most of us keep those feelings to ourselves, as if it's dirty little secret. It doesn't fit in with our images of what we should do and feel as parents." - Lawrence Kutner

[Quote No.40037] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Children [often] treat their friends differently than they treat the other people in their lives. A friendship is a place for experimenting with new ways of handling anger and aggression. It is an arena for practicing reciprocity, testing assertiveness, and searching for compromise in ways children would not [necessarily] try with parents or siblings." - Lawrence Kutner

[Quote No.40042] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Much of the emotional turmoil in the second year revolves around the difficult task of integrating the child's will into the family constellation. The child learns that her personal wishes (so cherished, seemingly so right) need to fit reasonably well with what others want. The parents learn that they, too, have to say 'no' with firmness and conviction but hopefully without harshness. [Explanations can help the child to start the process of understanding the reasons behind others behavior in the past and present and therefore anticipating their reactions in the future to things they may want to do.] " - Alicia F.

[Quote No.40043] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Even when they cannot be always available, the parents' fierce, unique love for their child makes them different in the child's heart and mind from all other caregivers. In spite of a long working day, a parent's passion for his or her child retains its many nuances of emotional intensity, ranging from rapture and delight to impatience and even rage, that no other relationship in the child's life can match. Even very young infants are smart enough to recognize this passionate commitment and to reciprocate it in kind." - Alicia F. Lieberman

[Quote No.40045] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Not too many years ago, a child's experience was limited by how far he or she could ride a bicycle or by the physical boundaries that parents set. Today ... the real boundaries of a child's life are set more by the number of available cable channels and videotapes, by the simulated reality of videogames, by the number of megabytes of memory in the home computer. Now kids can go anywhere, as long as they stay inside the electronic bubble." - Richard Louv

"Just as Michelangelo saw the "David" in the raw, unformed block of marble before he struck it with his chisel, we as parents can imagine the fine adult human beings who will emerge from our children's growing, evolving selves. By holding this image in our minds, we can, through our encouragement, nurture our children to blossom into their fullest potential. Each child has his own individual expressions to offer to the world. That expression can take many forms, from artistic interests, a way of thinking, athletic activities, a particular style of dressing, musical talents, different hobbies, etc. Our job is to join our children in discovering who they are." - Stephanie Martson

"Every family should extend First Amendment [to the US Constitution - part of the Bill of Rights - the freedom of expression] rights to all its members, but this freedom is particularly essential for our kids. Children must be able to say what they think, openly express their feelings, and ask for what they want and need if they are ever able to develop an integrated sense of self. They must be able to think their own thoughts, even if they differ from ours. They need to have the opportunity to ask us questions when they don't understand what we mean." - Stephanie Martson

And they have lots and lots of ideas." - Silvia Rimm

"Children are as destined biologically to break away as we are, emotionally, to hold on and protect. But thinking independently comes of acting independently. It begins with a two-year-old doggedly pulling on flannel pajamas during a July heat wave and with parents accepting that the impulse is a good one. When we let go of these small tasks without anger or sorrow but with pleasure and pride we give each act of independence our blessing." - Cathy Rindner Tempelsman

"If your child yells at you in front of someone else, you may feel outraged and embarrassed. Even so, try to see the incident from your child's perspective and discover what compelled him to act this way ('You must have been pretty angry to speak to me that way'). If you can do this, you can put an unpleasant incident behind you and in the process gain insight into your child. [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.]" - Cathy Rindner Tempelsman

[Quote No.40068] Need Area: Friends > Children
"It isn't easy to see the formerly loving child who once curled up in our laps turn into a surly stranger who cannot spare us a kind word. One mother ... was taken aback when she called, as her daughter was going out the door, 'Have a good time,' and her daughter angrily replied, 'Stop telling me what to do!' " - Nancy Samalin

[Quote No.40070] Need Area: Friends > Children
"We often treat our children as though they are the first children in history to exhibit such terrible behavior. In our anger, we communicate to them that 'good' children don't behave in those ways when in fact good children do. Instead of acknowledging that this is appropriate developmental behavior, we think our children are doing things deliberately to drive us crazy." - Nancy Samalin

[Quote No.40073] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Children [like all people] are just different from one another, especially in temperament. Some are shy, others bold; some active, others quiet; some confident, others less so. Respect for individual differences is in my view the cornerstone of good parent-child relationships [as it is in all relationships]." - Sandra Scarr
