No TV for kids under 2

A study published yesterday in the Journal of Pediatrics says that babies who watch Baby Einstein videos have smaller vocabularies than babies who don't. Want baby Einsteins? No TV while they're under 2. (That's the recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics, which, it turns out, knows what they're talking about, at least about this.) The study adds: Read to them. (I'm not sure how much more obvious this could be, but maybe that's just me.)

Read an article about the study here, or listen to another here.
