Mothers talk with their children, do so very differently, and tend to be more often at one side or the other of a series of dichotomies. Some talk with their youngsters and participate primarily in dialogue; some primarily talk at their children. Some mainly support the actions of their offspring, and if not, provide reasons why not; others primarily control the actions of their children, and do not explain why. Some ask genuine questions...others constraint questions. ...Some are prompted by what the child says or does; others by their own inner needs and interests. ...Some describe a large world in which events happened in the past and will happen in the future; others comment only about the here and now. ...Some mothers mediate the environment by endowing stimuli with meaning.

Small children should be supervised by a caregiver when at a computer,
to ensure no accidents occur that could hurt the child and that no equipment gets broken.
