“It is not the number of years we have behind us, but the number we have before us, that makes us careful and responsible and determined to find out the truth about everything.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
“To be told that our childs 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. Id much prefer him to deviate from the norm and be a cautious driver!”
—Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)
