Quotations From SAF LERMAN
No parent should strive to be like another; just like our children, each of us is unique. And just as we love each of our children for being a special person, our children learn to love each of us for being a distinct parent and person.Saf Lerman (20th century), U.S. parenting specialist and writer. Helping Children as They Grow, ch. 1 (1983).
Parents need to recognize that the negative behavior accompanying certain stages is just a small part of the total child. It should not become the main focus or be pushed into the limelight.Saf Lerman (20th century), U.S. parent educator. Helping Children as They Grow, ch. 1 (1983).

If a child is feeling disappointed, angry, or afraid about something, you can be sympathetic and understanding. But you don't need to get into your child's shoes and become disappointed, angry, or afraid yourself. Parents help by standing by their children, not by taking over their children's moods and feelings.Saf Lerman (20th century), U.S. parenting specialist and writer. Helping Children as They Grow, ch. 1 (1983).
Let children know you are human. It's important for children to see that parents are human and make mistakes. When you're sorry about something you've said or done, apologize! But don't sound guilt ridden. It is best when parents apologize in a manner that is straightforward and sincere.Saf Lerman (20th century), U.S. parenting specialist, writer. Helping Children as They Grow, ch. 1 (1983).
