"People learn the basic rules of interaction in families, by growing up with siblings and fighting among themselves, but kids are losing that now because of smaller families and computers and technology."

"What's emerging now is the need to train people in human skills. People matter again. It's coming back to people needs' - Mr Longford - Head of the Violent Crime Unit and trained as an FBI profiler.
