British pediatrician and child psychoanalyst.
I don't mind saying in advance that in my opinion jealousy is normal and healthy. Jealousy arises out of the fact that children love. If they have no capacity to love, then they don't show jealousy.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Creativity consists in maintaining a key aspect of the experience of childhood throughout one's life: the capacity to create and recreate the world. Creativity is the omnipotence of the child's mind.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If mothers are told to do this or that or the other,... they lose touch with their own ability to act.... Only too easily they feel incompetent. If they must look up everything in a book, they are always too late even when they do the right things, because the right things have to be done immediately. It is only possible to act at exactly the right point when the action is intuitive or by instinct, as we say. The mind can be brought to bear on the problem afterwards.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The precursor of the mirror is the mother's face.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
However, it can't be helped; mothers, if they do their job properly, are the representatives of the hard, demanding world and it is they who gradually introduce reality which is so often the enemy of impulse. There is anger with mother and hatred is somewhere even when there is absolutely no doubt of love that is mixed with adoration.More Donald Winnicott quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
