Not a bad thing

Teach a kid to surf and you protect him for a lifetime, at JP’s blog about information

JP warmly asserts his parental creed:

Legislation is a poor substitute for morals, ethics and values. Systems-driven constraints on behaviour are an even poorer substitute.

What children need is time.

Time with their parents, time with their peers, time with people who will build them up and encourage them and help shape them.

Time with people who will teach them how to fish.
