Famous quotes containing the word briggs:

    When autonomy is respected, the two-year-old does not carry this unfinished task into later stages of growth. In adolescence, the youngster will again concentrate on independence, but he won’t have to blast the roof off the second time around if it is already well established.
    —Dorothy Corkville Briggs (20th century)
