Child Therapy

June 2, 1992
Dear Dr. Haiman,
I feel great. Your support have given me a lot of strength to deal with life in a way that I wasn’t able to before therapy. I am very happy about what I am doing for my family and myself. Thanks for being there.

Dear Peter;
Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me, lend support and love, and to also talk with the attorney I have engaged.
This battle has been frustrating and exhausting. The legal system is certainly full of injustice at the present time! (Prayers and positive thinking have gotten us this far!)
Let’s hope the outcome of these procedures will protect this little child. He is so dear, so innocent and trusting, so deserving of a secure and happy childhood.
Our children are the legacy of humanity.
You are doing such a fine thing by leading people with your convictions that nurturing and loving is alright – and indeed mandatory for raising well-adjusted and healthy human beings.
I look forward to meeting you.
My deepest thanks for the time you shared with me.
We wish you peace, warmth and love.
Sincerely yours

Dear Mr. Haiman,
Recently my wife _______ and I had the privilege of attending three of your classes on "Parenting the Young Child" at Albany Adult School.
Although we do not have any young children of our own, we do run a licensed family daycare.
We are thankful to you for teaching us how effectively and affectionally young children should be taken care of.
We are applying the systemic training we received from you in our daycare and are happy to say that we are extremely successful.
We strongly recommend that all daycare operators go through your class. There is a whole lot to gain. We surely did.
Thank-you Dr. Haiman for all your help.

Dear Dr. Haiman,
Enclosed you will find a card, which I thought I had sent to my attorney to forward to you since I did not have your address at the time. I found it the other day in one of my notebooks, and sadly realized that it had never been mailed.
My attorney’s office recently forwarded your bill to me for the fees and costs you incurred during the course of my trial. As I mentioned to you on the phone prior to the trial, I am severely strapped financially at this point in time, I will however make monthly payments to you. Enclosed is a check for $50.00. I will make every effort to pay you this amount each month or more when possible, but I will at least pay something each month. If this arrangement is not acceptable to you, please let me know.
It’s been quite a whirlwind this past month. I absolutely love my new job even though it’s been very demanding. I’ve been swamped with challenges and obligations, but I still love it, so I know I’m in my right place! ______ and ______ are adjusting just fine. It’s been a real challenge because it’s not home schooling the way we knew it, but rather independent study. It’s different, but still flexible and accommodating to my son’s individual educational needs. We are happy and we are going in a positive direction.
Again, I thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart. Your testimony was most significant and thus invaluable to me and my children and our future. I am very grateful to you for your compassion and willingness to help me at a time when I really needed help. I trust all is well with you and your family. If I can ever be of any assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you again.

Dear Dr. Haiman,
I met you last June at the picnic; I had my daughter + newborn son with me. You sent me your article on the self-disciplined child, + suggested I subscribe to "Mothering". I never seemed to have enough time to thank you, but would like to do so now. I did subscribe to "Mothering", + find it much more suited to my needs than either "Parenting" or "Parents" (although I still read those, too!) Your article has been very helpful in my raising _______, who turned two on Jan 31. She is quite precocious (not just by my unbiased, of course!, opinion; her doctor says so as well); coupling this factor with having a nine month old, she gets to be almost more than I can handle at times. Then I re-read your article + regain my perspective. If she only knew the tongue=lashings + possible "swats" you have saved her from, ______ would thank you herself.
Love, ______
