    Ignoring the Scientology bit, Tom Cruise seems to have his head on straight when it comes to parenting issues:

    The kids, who are home-schooled by tutors from the Church of Scientology, are also encouraged to spend time outdoors.

    He explains: “The kids have no computer games. And absolutely no television. None.

    “They can listen to music and read just about any book they want, and they can choose the movies they want to see on the weekends, within reason.

    “They also have chores, because I want them to know that it’s important to work. I had a job when I was eight years old delivering newspapers.

    “So for me, it’s like: You want a clean room? Then you’ve got to clean your room. No one is going to do it for you.”

    At least one blogger thinks this is beyond the pale.

    Both children were adopted with former wife Nicole Kidman and were last seen trying to escape Cruise’s compound to return to the orphange.

    I wonder if they are allowed contact with anybody from outside the “church?” If it’s bad for right wing zealots to lock the kids down in the compound, it should be equally bad for left wing moonbats to lock them down on the estate.
