Baby Einsteins: Not So Smart After All - No TV please

Baby Einsteins: Not So Smart After All - TIME

The research found that with every hour per day spent watching baby DVDs and videos, infants learned six to eight fewer new vocabulary words than babies who never watched the videos. These products had the strongest detrimental effect on babies 8 to 16 months old, the age at which language skills are starting to form. "The more videos they watched, the fewer words they knew," says Christakis. "These babies scored about 10% lower on language skills than infants who had not watched these videos."

Intuitively I know. I also knew this from a talk in NPR two years ago. However, sometimes just cannot help relaxing a little bit. I just cannot play that chatterbox for my little kid, especially when she is only 3 months old, when she can respond with some sounds at the best (not even yi-yi, ah-ah). One-way conversations die down quickly. So which way is more damaging, silence or some TV/DVD?

Fortunately I do not have a TV at home (pathetic).

Hello dear Emma. How it is difficult to make in touch and contact with you foreigners! I am Persian journalist, spending my 17th years of age, and wrote to you many times but there was not any response. You know, all of my articles in my maternal language are being published without having any trouble, but unfortunately there is nobody helping me to feature my ideas and viewpoints in English. I know that if I write and translate them, nobody would attend. For example, I am following all the Adora Svitak-related news. He is not a pure American like me, but he is being supported by media. Are you going to help and guide me anyway?
