Quotations From ELLEN GALINSKY

 

  • 1.
    Cultural expectations shade and color the images that parents- to-be form. The baby product ads, showing a woman serenely holding her child, looking blissfully and mysteriously contented, or the television parents, wisely and humorously solving problems, influence parents-to-be.
    Ellen Galinsky (20th century), U.S. author and researcher. Between Generations, ch. 1 (1981).

    Parenthood brings profound pleasure and satisfactions—the unparalleled pleasure of caring so intensely for another human being, of watching growth, of reliving childhood, of seeing oneself in a new perspective, and of understanding more about life.
    Ellen Galinsky (20th century), U.S. author and researcher. Between Generations, ch. 2 (1981).

    In families children tend to take on stock roles, as if there were hats hung up in some secret place, visible only to the children. Each succeeding child selects a hat and takes on that role: the good child, the black sheep, the clown, and so forth.
    Ellen Galinsky (20th century), U.S. author and researcher. Between Generations, ch. 3 (1981).
