your baby can read?

Just wondering if anyone has tried the your baby can read system they advertise all the time. Does it work? How much does it actually cost? Any comments?

  • Do a search. You'll see that it's a waste of time and money.

    I hope it's the next thing (besides baby einstein) that gives refunds to parents for misleading them so horribly. Poor kids who are exposed to it...not learning to read correctly. I feel so sorry for them.

  • It is one of the many scams that play on parents need to compete and make their child a genius. Kids are born with their intellect you as a mom are supposed to do things to stimulate their brains. When they are very small talking to them all the time and reading helps. Babies love the sound of their parents voices it is a comfort. They also get used to language. Playing games as they get older is helpful along with reading to them. As they get older and have a longer attention span you can teach them letters and numbers with flash cards and again continue reading. My son was reading by 4 1/2 he started Kindergarten then. He was used to books and had picked up words while we read to him. He is a naturally gifted child so we encourage him to do his best and he does. Just play with your child and read to them. The videos and programs out there don't work. If you child is a genius you will know.

  • There was an article on it in the October issue of Parents on this subject. Their experts agree Your Baby Can Read is not a great buy either.
