More Evidence

This story seems to add more evidence to my hotly contested post about children and media. While I agree with the evidence in this story, this passage caught my eye:

"Parents and caretakers are the baby's first and best teachers," he noted. "They instinctively adjust their speech, eye gaze and social signals to support language acquisition. Watching attention-getting DVDs and TV may not be an even swap for warm social human interaction at a very young age."

May not be an even swap? Please.
