All about the baby and a little more!

Sharing the essence of something I listened to.

Thanks to 'super why', 'word girl', 'wild krats', 'word world' and 'brain pop' the guilt of letting the screen baby sit for you for a little while, is greatly reduced. However, a radio program I was listening to yesterday actually said that there is no evidence to stay that spending more time with the children physically was either good or bad for them. Naturally we tend to helicopter around them, checking on them every five minutes to make sure someone is not strangling themselves on the jump rope. But we need to let them independently figure things out for themselves as well....

The program featured Jennifer Senior, author of "All Joy and No fun". Also if time doesnt permit me to read I go for the audio edition which I can listen to while attending to chores of cooking. Yippee for http://www.wnyc.org/!
