Except I read this article today and about fell out of my chair. Apparently Disney is offering a refund on Baby Einstein DVD's after they recieve a letter threatening lawsuit from some public health lawyers. (want the details- read the article)
The point is - the lawyers believe there was false advertisement and that parents believe these DVD's were making their children smart, when in fact we were just plopping them down in front of another TV show. Before you all start shouting, I understand they were learning stuff, specifically the stuff you wanted them to learn. Of course other shows teach them too, my 2 yr old has learned to ask "Where'd he go?" everytime Nemo disappears.
We all know hours of television/movies/video games is bad. We all know it makes for shorter attention spans, couch potatoes, etc. So we limit the amount of television they watch and
At least I thought we all knew this, and did this. But apparently not.
