Adult development

“In the adult there are no frustrating parents to stimulate growth. But there is a mature mind capable of tolerating the frustration generated by the recognition that some impulses may not be gratified the way they were in earlier stages of development and others will not be gratified at all.”

From Adult Development, Chapter 4, by Calvin Colarusso and Robert Nemiroff.
