Products That Back-Fire
Baby Einstein Makes Infants Dumber
An article in Time Magazine said that these products could be a huge mistake in the learning development of children.
Implications - The idea of Baby Einstein was to have your child sit in front of a screen and watch the video series. A new study on the products by Frederick Zimmerman and Dr. Dimitri Christakis from the University of Washington has found that the videos "may actually delay language development in toddlers." They also found that the products have the "strongest detrimental effect on babies 8 to 16 months old."
