    Louise J. Kaplan (20th century), U.S. psychologist. Oneness and Separateness: From Infant to Individual, introduction (1978).

  • ''The toddler is struggling to make sense of his parents' "No." No-saying is the helpless child's way of acting as though he had the power and authority of his parents. The more their "no's" make him feel vulnerable, the more he has to say "No" himself.''
    Louise J. Kaplan (20th century), psychologist. Oneness and Separateness: From Infant to Individual, ch. 6 (1978).
