Mothers of Intervention


A new study of mothers by the Institute for American Values (formerly the Royal Society for the Study of Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, and Chevrolet) gets the follwing write-up in the Washington Times:

Ninety-five percent of mothers say they wish "American culture made it easier to instill positive values in children," she noted….

American popular culture—particularly entertainment and advertising—also concerned mothers. More than 80 percent agreed that society as a whole should do more to protect children from "adult" aspects of the world.

The Times summary is here. And the study itself is here.

What the world needs now is more educational TV? As a former child–and once and future parent–I hope not. Let the cultural filibuster begin.
