Famous quotes containing the word bettelheim:

    The goal in raising one’s child is to enable him, first, to discover who he wants to be, and then to become a person who can be satisfied with himself and his way of life. Eventually he ought to be able to do in his life whatever seems important, desirable, and worthwhile to him to do; to develop relations with other people that are constructive, satisfying, mutually enriching; and to bear up well under the stresses and hardships he will unavoidably encounter during his life.
    —Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    The child knows only that he engages in play because it is enjoyable. He isn’t aware of his need to play—a need which has its source in the pressure of unsolved problems. Nor does he know that his pleasure in playing comes from a deep sense of well-being that is the direct result of feeling in control of things, in contrast to the rest of his life, which is managed by his parents or other adults.
    —Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    From a child’s play, we can gain understanding of how he sees and construes the world—what he would like it to be, what his concerns are, what problems are besetting him.
    —Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)
