    Question Is this sentence correct?

    In one of my recent exams that it's essay topic was about the influence of television programs on children, my final sentence was:

    " All we can do is select what our children can see and not see "

    I know there could have been better things to write, but my question Is whether this sentence is correct, or are there any errors in it?

    It should end with a full stop.

    Thank you for replying MR. Rover_KE, I did end the sentence with a full stop in the real exam.
    But do I understand from your reply that this sentence is error free?
