Who is alicia f. lieberman?

Famous quotes by alicia f. lieberman:

    In the most desirable conditions, the child learns to manage anxiety by being exposed to just the right amounts of it, not much more and not much less. This optimal amount of anxiety varies with the child’s age and temperament. It may also vary with cultural values.... There is no mathematical formula for calculating exact amounts of optimal anxiety. This is why child rearing is an art and not a science.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    Play is a major avenue for learning to manage anxiety. It gives the child a safe space where she can experiment at will, suspending the rules and constraints of physical and social reality. In play, the child becomes master rather than subject.... Play allows the child to transcend passivity and to become the active doer of what happens around her.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    Routine physical punishment such as spanking teaches a toddler that might makes right and that it is fine to hit when one is stronger and can get away with it.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    When the toddler does something and there are consequences for his action—civilization begins.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    Acknowledging separation feelings directly and sympathetically is the best way of coping with them. It is actually helpful to tell a toddler ‘I’ll miss you,’ or ‘I will think of you during the day,’ or ‘It is hard to say goodbye,’ or ‘I can’t wait to see you at the end of the day.’ These messages tell the child that he is important to the parent even when they are not together and that out of sight need not mean out of mind.
