Tom bans TV and computer games

No TV - Yeah! I see Tom Cruise is in the news again, (surely not?) this time in relation to how he raises his kids.

Tom has said he bars his two adopted children from watching TV and playing computer games and expects them to help out around the house. The kids, who are home-schooled by tutors from the Church of Scientology, are also encouraged to spend time outdoors:

"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."

So they don't get to watch South Park then?

I wonder what movies they do get to watch that are "within reason"? I'm guessing Mission Impossible 1&2, Jerry Maguire, Top Gun etc...

Lighten up, Tom. Don't want people thinking you're a bit strange, eh?
