  • Being able to parrot back words is NOT reading. To be able to actually read, a child has to also have comprehension of what they are saying. Babies can not do that.

  • I read an article in This Week where they did a study on that. It teaches babies very little, if anything at all.

    I love that people say they don't want tv to raise their children. What do you think you're doing by plopping them in front of the tube to watch that garbage? Take your $100 and buy real books and read to your children yourself.

    Also known to make your children more dumb than smart: Baby Einstein. They even had a "recall" a couple of years ago, you could turn in up to four dvd's for a refund.

  • Wow so apparently, I'm a bad mom because I want to try new things to further my childs learning?? mrsziemann you have no damn right saying I'm letting the tv raise my child, I devote my life, gave up everything to be a stay at home mom so I could raise my child not someone else.

  • Just to let you know; The questions asked were rhetorical questions and were not directed at the person posting. The "you" did not mean YOU personally. So stop being defensive.

  • I never said YOU were. Stop taking everything so personally.

  • The whole reason for asking questions in the first place is for personal reasons or concerns. All I'm saying is if your going to answer strangers questions try not to say things that might be taken the wrong way.

  • Apparently, the "old" things work just fine. My daughter learned to read by the time she was 4...fluently I might add... & all we did was read to her. She's in K now & reading on a 3rd grade level. The library is free.
