I've often discouraged too much hyped up song and dance on the TV/DVD for our children a-la Wiggles or Hi-5 in preference for slower paced stories/videos etc precisely for this reason. The last thing we need is more adults with minimal attention spans seeking instant gratification. Most problems in life take much longer to solve than the time it takes Dorothy to do a dance.

Am only kidding of course. How are you and your family by the way, brother? I hope all is well and good in the Lord.
