Well Duh, Einstein!

The Houston Chronicle ran a story today about the Baby Einstein videotapes. It seems they may not turn your kid into an instant genius after all! In fact they might do the opposite and dumb him down! It seems the tapes jump around a lot and have very little language. The more a child watches the tapes, the less new words he may pick up. One expert even said he would rather see a kid watch American Idol than those videos, because then the little tyke would hear more words and maybe interact with others in the process. And here is the reason for the DUH...guess what was suggested as a better activity? Your little one would be better off if...revolutionary idea...YOU READ TO HER!!! Hmmmmm nothing like stating the obvious and calling it news...
