Top Responses

Famous quotes containing the words top and/or responses:

    Life stood on the top stair a moment
    Waved her last gray slander down the stair,
    I will not forget her absent eyes
    Her other smile like one rose
    Falling, falling everywhere....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Research shows clearly that parents who have modeled nurturant, reassuring responses to infants’ fears and distress by soothing words and stroking gentleness have toddlers who already can stroke a crying child’s hair. Toddlers whose special adults model kindliness will even pick up a cookie dropped from a peer’s high chair and return it to the crying peer rather than eat it themselves!
    Alice Sterling Honig (20th century)
