    Our oldest son, now 3 1/2, loved the Baby Einstein series and they helped him with concepts like shapes, colors, seasons, body parts. I thoguht they were great. No video is a substitute for quality time, but every so often you need a break and better Baby Einstein than Barney, Teletubbies or worse.

    I agree with the article....TV is bad for kids regardless of the format. Kids need to engage with their parents and their environment - not the tube. Anything in moderation is okay....but most people do not use things like this in moderation

    The University of Washington is standing behind a news release that upset the Walt Disney Co. and prompted the company's chief executive to demand a retraction.

    UW President Mark Emmert, in a letter today to Disney's chief executive officer and president Robert Iger, said he will not retract the release, which summarized a study on baby videos and their possible effects.
