I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Parents often talk about the younger generation as if they didn't have anything to do with it.More Haim Ginott [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 [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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When a child hits a child, we call it aggression. When a child hits an adult, we call it hostility. When an adult hits an adult, we call it assault. When an adult hits a child, we call it discipline.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Misbehavior and punishment are not opposites that cancel each other - on the contrary they breed and reinforce each other.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Treat a child as though he already is the person he's capable of becoming.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whenever I hear about a child needing something, I ask myself, 'Is it what he needs or what he wants?' It isn't always easy to distinguish between the two. A child has many real needs which can and should be satisfied. His wants are a bottomless pit. He wants, for example, to sleep with his parents. He needs to be in his own bed. At Christmas he wants every toy advertised on television. He needs only one or two.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How can we help a child change from undependable to dependable, from a mediocre student to a capable student, from someone who won't amount to very much to someone who will count for something. The answer is at once both simple and complicated: We treat a child as if he already is what we would like him to become.More Haim Ginott [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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Each of us carries within himself a collection of instant insults.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Responsibility is fostered by allowing children a voice and wherever indicated a choice in matters that affect them.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When children feel understood, their loneliness and hurt diminish. When children are understood, their love for their parent is deepened. A parent's sympathy serves as emotional first aid for bruised feelings. When we genuinely acknowledge a child's plight and voice her disappointment, she often gathers the strength to face reality.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When gentle persuasion [of children] falls on deaf ears, we resort to ridicule and rebuke. Then we return to threats and punishment. This is the modus operandi of a mutual frustration society.More Haim Ginott [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
