Famous quotes containing the word adults:

    The new concept of the child as equal and the new integration of children into adult life has helped bring about a gradual but certain erosion of these boundaries that once separated the world of children from the word of adults, boundaries that allowed adults to treat children differently than they treated other adults because they understood that children are different.
    Marie Winn (20th century)

    All adults who care about a baby will naturally be in competition for that baby.... Each adult wishes that he or she could do each job a bit more skillfully for the infant or small child than the other.
    T. Berry Brazelton (20th century)

    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)
