Who is ron taffel?

Famous quotes containing the words ron taffel and/or taffel:

    Most people agree that men have trouble showing hurt, jealousy, and fear but even mothers, whose wider emotional range is often taken for granted, also seem more comfortable with anger than these other “unparentlike” feelings. This is probably because several generations of mothers have now been twelve-step-programmed and pop-psychologized enough to believe that expressing hurt, fear, anxiety, or dependence will create pathological guilt in their kids.
    Ron Taffel (20th century)

    Even as kids reach adolescence, they need more than ever for us to watch over them.... Adolescence is not about letting go. It’s about hanging on during a very bumpy ride.
    —Ron Taffel (20th century)
