Famous quotes containing the words greenspan and/or brad:

    Parents are led to believe that they must be consistent, that is, always respond to the same issue the same way. Consistency is good up to a point but your child also needs to understand context and subtlety . . . much of adult life is governed by context: what is appropriate in one setting is not appropriate in another; the way something is said may be more important than what is said. . . .
    —Stanley I. Greenspan (20th century)

    When Brad doesn’t come nights, you’ll know the blonde he’s sitting up with is a giraffe.
    Fredric M. Frank (1911–1977)
