Baby Einstein Not So Smart After All

8 Aug

From the DIS News:

Researchers from the University of Washington in Seattle say that baby DVDs and videos – such as “Baby Einstein” – are different from beneficial children’s programming because they have little dialogue, short scenes and disconnected pictures and show “linguistically indescribable images such as a lava lamp.”

The researchers found that for every hour per day spent watching baby DVDs and videos, infants understood an average of six to eight fewer words than babies who didn’t watch them. Their study was published Tuesday in the Journal of Pediatrics.

Want to help your baby’s language skills? Don’t put on a video, just have a nice little chat.
