Well, maybe not a plasma but a new study out today says that 20 percent of kids under age 3 have TVs in their room. Umm, okay. I mean who are these people that they sample?
I am feeling secure in my parenting knowing we only have one TV set in our house. And it's in the family room. (Extra points). Surely 4 laptops and 2 PCs all DVD ready in a 1400 square foot home with two adults and 2 kids under 10 can't count .. .... .
From the Chicago Tribune story:
The number of shows aimed at babies has exploded in the last decade, with video titles such as "Brainy Baby" and "Baby Einstein" joined last year by BabyFirstTV, billed as the first satellite channel catering to infants. Makers of the shows often bill them as educational aids, though researchers say there is no solid evidence to back such claims.
Nothing like a good guilt study to come out on a Monday.
