Sesame Street Videos Spark Controversy

Here's the link to the article:


Basically people are freaking out because Sesame Street is coming out with a new line of videos geared towards the 6 months to 2 years age group! Parents/people are not suggesting that we sit our infants in front of the TV all day long, but it would be nice to have an option other than the Baby Einstein videos for a 30 minute distraction/interaction for your children.

They say that no one under the age of 2 should be watching ANY tv. Do they really think that most parents/caregivers wait until children are 2 to turn the TV on for them? I used to let Rachel watch TV at 14 months and let me tell you, they don't sit and watch. They have it in the background and play with their toys. Sometimes she would sit and watch but never for more than a few mins. Mostly she would turn around and dance/sing when there was a song on the TV. What's wrong with that???
