Famous quotes containing the word rogers:

    Parenting forces us to get to know ourselves better than we ever might have imagined we could—and in many new ways. . . . We’ll discover talents we never dreamed we had and fervently wish for others at moments we feel we desperately need them. As time goes on, we’ll probably discover that we have more to give and can give more than we ever imagined. But we’ll also find that there are limits to our giving, and that may be hard for us to accept.
    —Fred Rogers (20th century)

    And those handmade presents that children often bring home from school: They have so much value! The value is that the child put whatever he or she could into making them. The way we parents respond to the giving of such gifts is very important. To the child the gift is really self, and they want so much for their selves to be acceptable, to be loved.
    —Fred Rogers (20th century)
