Toddlers and Television

Several news agencies are reporting new statistics concerning the use of television in the home. Perhaps the most startling finding is that 40% of three month olds regularly watch TV as well as 90% of 2 year olds. You can find fleshed out versions of the story and why parents think this is a good idea at MSNBC and on CBS affiliate KPIX.

Dr. Jane Healy wrote a book called Endangered Minds. It is worth reading by every parent and every educator. Young minds are "plastic" and forming; to subject them to television, computer screens and video games interferes with the developing brain and actually changes the brain.
