As just one example of the kinds of issues involved, people once
claimed that exposing infants to TV would increase their exposure
to words and improve their rate of language learning.
Unfortunately, more recent studies have showed the opposite:
an infant's rate of learning language *decreases* with the
amount of exposure to TV. Far more important than passive
exposure is the emotional involvement of the child with
caregivers and siblings in actively using language.
Do you have any more information on these studies?
Not work related but as having a one year old son and no television in the house ammunition to keep it that way with my wife saying we should get a TV would be useful ;-)
