According to the poet Roald Dahl, whenever he advises parents to keep their children away from their TV set, they often react by saying that it keeps their children calm. They would also raise question as to what they should do to keep their children entertained if they take the TV set away.

‘But if we take the set away,
What shall we do to entertain
Our darling children? Please explain!’
