As we all know, letting your kid see a television screen before he's two will fry his little brain. If he doesn't get into Harvard Class of '28, you'll be able to trace it back to that one half hour last week where you parked him in front of The Wiggles so you could get through that conference call.
Breaking out the earphones and letting him listen to some mp3's of children's stories on your iPod, oh the other hand, enhances his language development skills by stimulating the interstitial neurosynaptical--ah, whatever. There's media everywhere, whatrya gonna do? As long as he doesn't swallow your Nano, I'm sure he'll be fine. Parenthacks has a selection of links to some downloading sites.
