Famous quotes containing the word briggs:

    When autonomy is respected, the two-year-old does not carry this unfinished task into later stages of growth. In adolescence, the youngster will again concentrate on independence, but he won’t have to blast the roof off the second time around if it is already well established.
    —Dorothy Corkville Briggs (20th century)

    —Dorothy Corkville Briggs (20th century)

    The opposite of love is not hate, as many believe, but rather indifference. Nothing communicates disinterest more clearly than distancing. A child cannot feel valued by parents who are forever absorbed in their own affairs.
    —Dorothy Corkville Briggs (20th century)
