“Ultimately, it is the receiving of the child and hearing what he or she has to say that develops the child’s mind and personhood…. Parents who enter into a dialogue with their children, who draw out and respect their opinions, are more likely to have children whose intellectual and ethical development proceeds rapidly and surely.” –Mary Field Belenky
