So apparently using your television as a babysitter/parental replacementÂ is not actually a good idea! Shocking, I know, but it appears as though those popular “Baby Einstein” videos and other similarÂ educational shows actually do more harm than good.Â When I was working as an intern at Target in 2004, those videos were flying off the shelves.Â
“…the only thing that baby videos are doing is producing a generation of overstimulated kids.”Â I can see the drug companies doing little dances in their chairs as they count the profits from Ritalin.
Also, “The gene most closely linked to left-handedness has been found…”Â In even better news, this gene “is also associated with a slight increase in developing certain mental illnesses such as schizophrenia.”
I’m left handed.Â 🙂
And finally, I was born on the Mississippi River,Â justÂ a few blocks from where the 35W bridge collapsed in Minnesota.
