Famous quotes containing the word peer:

    When trouble comes no mother should have to plead guilty alone. The pediatricians, psychologists, therapists, goat herders, fathers, and peer groups should all be called to the bench as well. . . .
    Mary Kay Blakely (20th century)

    The Peer now spreads the glitt’ring Forfex wide,
    T’inclose the Lock; now joins it, to divide.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Research shows clearly that parents who have modeled nurturant, reassuring responses to infants’ fears and distress by soothing words and stroking gentleness have toddlers who already can stroke a crying child’s hair. Toddlers whose special adults model kindliness will even pick up a cookie dropped from a peer’s high chair and return it to the crying peer rather than eat it themselves!
    Alice Sterling Honig (20th century)
