Memorable Quotes

"Sadly, content of children is pushed to two streams of individuals. You know, the parents and the individuals who find babies cute and are in that, you know, realm, parenting, babysitting world. And then there's like the worst people in society who fetishize children." [00:05:37] -Sarah, Mom Uncharted

"I just want us as parents to be more mindful that our children deserve dignity and respect and they're autonomous human beings and we're developing a digital footprint for them and their right to privacy and informed consent and digital safety. It matters, right?" [00:29:56] -Sarah, Mom Uncharted

"Kids aren't content. Kids are merely trying to exist and navigate this world as we are, and we need to treat them with dignity and respect.” [00:34:45] -Sarah, Mom Uncharted
