Jon Keller talks against the people who, over time, have been ‘slamming’ the Berenstain Bears methods of implanting moral lessons with children. He seems to be disappointed, to say the least, about the negative comments. He talks about a recent incident in which high school girls were fighting, and their peers took video instead on taking any action. He uses this incident as an example of young people having needed more lectures, and not less, as they were growing up.
