the pressure is off

I just read about a new report rejecting the idea that your baby will be dumb if you don't play classical music to them or buy brightly colored toys featuring strange looking animals.

"...Mead says a few early childhood advocates have misinterpreted or misused research to suggest that if parents don't sufficiently stimulate children's brains before age 3, they'll do irreparable harm. There is no evidence that the first three years "are a singular window for growth that slams shut once children turn 3," Mead says."

This was my favorite part of the story, "Officials from Baby Einstein and The Smart Baby did not respond to interview requests."

You know they're all working overtime tonight on damage control. hahahaha
