Famous quotes containing the words terri apter and/or apter:

    Parents are never forgiven for not giving just the right response at the appropriate moment. Or, rather, there are particular times in the adolescent’s or young adult’s life, when a certain response is needed, and this need is not met, and the failure to meet this need is forever remembered, and is never forgiven.
    Terri Apter (20th century)

    Adolescents do get very angry with their parents, and acknowledging this anger is part of acknowledging them. If the anger is not acknowledged then its expression is increased. The parent seems super-strong. The adolescent tries to become the super-attacker.
    —Terri Apter (20th century)
