"There are many excellent programs, many more 'good' programs and only a few truly bad ones. The real issue is not just safety but whether a program matches the child's needs and the values of the parents. "

"Every child has in him an aching void for excitement and if we don't fill it with something that is exciting and interesting and good for him, he will fill it with something that is exciting and interesting and that isn't good for him".
