Luckily, unless we do everything wrong, our children manage to grow up somehow.
“I used to believe that if someone understood the deep motives of her behavior, she would change it almost automatically. But frankly, over the years I believe in ‘insight’ less and less. People have to have the will to change, and my young woman didn’t. I’ve come to think social pressure, real hands-on, multiple encouragement, might have a better effect.”
How quickly children pick up our emotions, even though we are doing our best to hide them.
