Famous quotes containing the words bruno bettelheim, bettelheim and/or bruno:

    To be a good enough parent one must be able to feel secure in one’s parenthood, and one’s relation to one’s child...The security of the parent about being a parent will eventually become the source of the child’s feeling secure about himself.
    Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    To be told that our child’s behavior is “normal” offers little solace when our feelings are badly hurt, or when we worry that his actions are harmful at the moment or may be injurious to his future. It does not help me as a parent nor lessen my worries when my child drives carelessly, even dangerously, if I am told that this is “normal” behavior for children of his age. I’d much prefer him to deviate from the norm and be a cautious driver!
    —Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    It may be you fear more to deliver judgment upon me than I fear judgment.
    —Giordano Bruno (1548–1600)
