Tom Cruise Quote
The important thing with a child is that you love them, you protect them and you help them to grow and find out who they are. And as a parent, it's my responsibility to help them to become independent and get all the knowledge and a broad view of the world and life. I know that Nic [former wife Nicole Kidman] absolutely agrees with that. And that's what's important: being there.
Quoted in Neil Strauss, "The Passion of the Cruise", Rolling Stone (August 2004).
