Famous quotes containing the word group:

    Remember that the peer group is important to young adolescents, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Parents are often just as important, however. Don’t give up on the idea that you can make a difference.
    —The Lions Clubs International and the Quest Nation. The Surprising Years, I, ch.5 (1985)

    Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)
