Quotation by Roger Gould

She [the mother] deals with the world of child rearing, where hundreds of experts give contradictory advice; the outcome can't be measured for fifteen to twenty years. She has to process this advice through her intuition and a constant stream of her own childhood memories dredged up by her child's dilemmas. And she must do all this with others—mother, mother-in-law, neighbors and schoolteachers—looking over her shoulder, marking her report card, measuring her against their own standards.
Roger Gould (20th century), U.S. psychotherapist and author. Transformations, sec. 4, ch. 2 (1978).
