Mama Drama: "Your Baby Can Read"
Think educational programming is an okay reason to plop baby down in front of the TV? The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) sure doesn’t think so. The organization is actively protesting the videos from Your Baby Can Read, claiming that they use deceptive marketing techniques and actually offer health risks. “There’s no evidence that Your Baby Can Read is doing anything for babies except potentially harming them by getting them hooked on screens so early in life,” said Susan Linn, the executive director of the CCFC, who’s trying to get the video company to offer refunds to parents who have purchased the tapes. If history repeats itself, we’re willing to bet they’ll get their way – after all, the CCFC successfully brought about parent refunds and a new marketing initiative with the Baby Einstein series in 2006. We’re eager to watch the whole thing unfold. What are your thoughts on educational videos for baby?
