On the other hand, we always had lots of interesting babysitters–seminary students and friends of my parents–who told really good ghost stories.” ~ Kelly Link

But for most people, there’s strain, you know? There’s a lot of pressure, things can’t be perfect, parents can’t be perfect all the time. There’s a divorce, there’s money issues, whatever. People work, so you don’t always have these vast reserves of patience every time your kid goes crazy.” ~ Dave Eggers

When this whole McMartin thing went down, I was at a dinner party with about eight people, all from different backgrounds and from all over the world. And every single person at that table had had some weird experience as a child. I think everyone has – whether it was with a babysitter or playing doctor, but usually when some older person tries to come in contact with you. It’s amazing how much we block out.” ~ Laura Dern
  45. “We [with Nimai Larson] listened to hardly any music except Hare Krishna music growing up and the occasional Garth Brooks that our babysitter would play for us. From a very early age, we looked at music as mantra-based, very cyclical, and having no linear time.” ~ Taraka Larson

  59. “When you’re in a movie, they treat you like you’re four years old and give you whatever you want.

  64. “I was brought up bilingual, but there came a point where my mom went back to work and I got a white babysitter, so sadly I lost it. Now I can understand Spanish and put words together, but I don’t speak it fluently. I’m ashamed of that.” ~ Michael Trevino
