Yanni: Whenever I ever got into trouble, instead of my father raising his voice or his hand, he would get very quiet. My father would take me into another room and he would talk calmly to me. My father's approach was always much more difficult to deal with than anger. There was no punishment. My father would always have serious talks. My father and my mother insisted on treating all of us with respect and kindness, and we all learned to hold ourselves to that standard. I loved both my parents so deeply that I couldn't bear to hurt or disappoint them ever.
