Who is elaine heffner?

Famous quotes containing the words elaine heffner and/or heffner:

    The “universal moments” of child rearing are in fact nothing less than a confrontation with the most basic problems of living in society: a facing through one’s children of all the conflicts inherent in human relationships, a clarification of issues that were unresolved in one’s own growing up. The experience of child rearing not only can strengthen one as an individual but also presents the opportunity to shape human relationships of the future.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    It is certainly not new or startling to find that women feel the desire to take care of their children. What is new is the number of women who are startled by such feelings.
    —Elaine Heffner (20th century)
