Choosing Toys For Two Year Olds

Famous quotes containing the words olds, year, choosing and/or toys:

    An older child, one who possesses a conscience, will be troubled with self-reproaches and feelings of shame for his naughtiness, even if he is not discovered. But our two-year-olds and our three-year- olds experience guilt feelings only when they feel or anticipate disapproval from the outside. In doing this, they have taken the first steps toward the goal of conscience, but there is a long way ahead before the policeman outside becomes the policeman inside.
    Selma H. Fraiberg (20th century)

    We are finding out that what looked like a neglected house a year ago is in fact a ruin.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    Deborah J. Swiss (20th century)

    If, during his daily walk, he met any children flying kites, playing marbles, or whirling peg tops, he would buy the toys from them and exhort them not to gamble or indulge in vain sport.
    —For the State of Rhode Island, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
