Baby Einstein … not so much

October 23, 2009

According to this article:

the Walt Disney Company is now offering refunds for all those “Baby Einstein” videos that did not make children into geniuses.

They may have been a great electronic baby sitter, but the unusual refunds appear to be a tacit admission that they did not increase infant intellect.

So, it turns out that turning on a box and walking out of the room does nothing to increase your child’s intellect. That’s crazy. Next thing you’ll tell me is that Einstein himself didn’t just passively sit in from of a TV to get so smart. What is a parent to do. I’m starting to have my doubt that splashing water on a baby’s forehead will make them magically a good person.
