    Placing your infant in front of the TV, even to watch Baby Einstein videos, makes her dumber. Disney, owner of Baby Einstein, of course disputes the findings.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics says that kids under 2 shouldn’t watch ANY TV and has been doing so for several years now for the very reasons that study says. Real interaction is how young children learn best, period.

    Mine watch HBO’s “Classical Baby”. They love it and my 3yo can spot a Monet a mile away! It’s been a real springboard for deeper conversation and awareness of art and music. I certainly don’t suggest plopping them down in front of the tube alone for hours, but we enjoy what we do watch.

    My kids watch a lot of what I watch, possibly too much mixed martial arts fighting shows, Anthony Bourdain, Futurama, as well as a few kids shows/cartoons that they like. They both love Ninja Warrior. Musically, they listen to what the wife and I like and are welcome to like what they want and request what they like. Both boys have developed an appreciation for Deke Dickerson lately.
