On living with chimpanzees:
"I learned the importance of contact, affection and play. Reassurance. And the importance of distracting rather than punishing when the infant is too small to understand, and then gradually teaching rules. That was the great thing about being out in the wild, he could spill his food - it didn't matter because it was the forest floor. I see so many parents upset when the child spills his milk and wants to make patterns with it on the table. He's not doing something wrong, it's important investigation and exploration."
