Famous quotes containing the word active:

    Alexander Theroux (b. 1940)

    Even if you find yourself in a heated exchange with your toddler, it is better for your child to feel the heat rather than for him to feel you withdraw emotionally.... Active and emotional involvement between parent and child helps the child make the limits a part of himself.
    Stanley I. Greenspan (20th century)

    Edward Weston (1886–1958)
