Dump the Baby Einstein videos

Yes, toss the Baby Einstein videos away. The research is in:
“For every hour a day that babies 8 to 16 months old were shown such popular series as “Brainy Baby” or “Baby Einstein,” they knew six to eight fewer words than other children, the study found.”
For more on the research check out the Made to Stick posting here.

    Same study: Among toddlers (age 17 to 24 months), there were no significant associations between any type of media exposure and CDI scores.

    However, as we all know, intelligence is decided by your vocabulary at 16 months, and has no association with mathmatics, cognition, or thought process I guess all we need to know has been accomplished. Especially since the best research is when you conduct it by telephone to the parents.
