Sitting children in front of the TV can do more harm than good in children under 2. I thought it was harmless to sit with my daughter and watch Sesame Street, but according to researchers it harms their intelligence.

The first two years is a critical time for brain development. Babies brains are wired by experimenting with cause and effect. So interacting, exploring, playing with you and others help develop the skills they need to grow intellectually, socially and emotionally. Exposing them to classical music builds language skills, spatial and temporal reasoning which is needed for math. So the next time you have time to play with your baby, keep the TV off and enjoy more time interacting and exploring.
