I should clarify. We did not take the DVD player as a "safety measure"; it was actually used to share a family-time movie after a tiring day of sailing a small boat.

During the day my daughter read, did crafts, joined me sailing, and played/explored shore side. We would fish before dinner, often cook the catch, and only then would the DVD player come out, when everyone was exuasted and something familiar was comforting.
