Israeli psychologist
I have great faith in 'ordinary parents.' Who has a child's welfare more at heart than his ordinary parent? It's been my experience that when parents are given the skills to be more helpful, not only are they able to use these skills, but they infuse them with a warmth and a style that is uniquely their own.More Haim Ginott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I've come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It's my personal approach that creates the climate. It's my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess tremendous power to make a student's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a student humanized or de-humanized.More Haim Ginott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
While parents possess the original key to their offspring's experience, teachers have a spare key. They, too, can open or close the minds and hearts of children.More Haim Ginott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Happiness... is not a destination: it is a manner of traveling. Happiness is not an end in itself. It is a by-product of working, playing, loving and living.More Haim Ginott quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Parents often talk about the younger generation as if they didn't have anything to do with it.More Haim Ginott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
