    Hypocrisy ... is only bad when it is improperly used.
    —George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Parents do not give up their children to strangers lightly. They wait in uncertain anticipation for an expression of awareness and interest in their children that is as genuine as their own. They are subject to ambivalent feelings of trust and competitiveness toward a teacher their child loves and to feelings of resentment and anger when their child suffers at her hands. They place high hopes in their children and struggle with themselves to cope with their children’s failures.
    —Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
