It was a matter of time before somebody came up with this idea to offer some kind of dedicated channel for infants and toddlers. But at $10/month I personally would rather buy a Little Einstein, or Sesame Beginnings DVD before shelling out that kind of cash. Besides, my daughter watches only about 10-15 minutes of the stuff before she gets bored and starts chewing on something, or much more entertaining – staring at the dog.
The scary thing about this new channel is now lazy parents are training their kid’s at an even younger age to become couch potatoes (probably like themselves). I just read that in 2003, Kaiser Family Foundation did a “study” and found 26% of kids under 2 already have a TV in their room. That’s pretty sad but it’s the parent’s choice if they want the TV to be their special friend.
