A TV in the Baby Bottle [electronic resource]

Whether it's to give parents a break from caretaking, to provide kids with an educational head start, or a guilt-free mixture of both, TV shows that purport to be good for a baby's brain attract more new viewers every year. But can children really learn from targeted edutainment the way they can from live human beings, or even by playing with objects like simple wooden blocks? In this program psychologists from Seattle Pacific University's Baby Lab and BabyFirstTV representatives discuss what's really going on when an infant appears mesmerized by a kiddie show, and whether it's possible that the programs are doing more harm than good.

The impending birth of a new baby causes a Pennsylvania farm family to review the developmental stages of life and death in their three generations. The commentary of scholars places their experience in sociological and psychological perspective as the development of the new baby exemplifies the developmental "clocks" of infancy and early childhood. Other case studies examine the influence of the child's personality on the family.

In this ABC News program, Freedman and Rhodes square off against the University of Michigan's Leonard Eron and L. Rowell Heusmann, the powerful team whose decades of data helped lay the foundation of the case against media violence-a case that has traveled all the way to Capitol Hill and might alter the future of the media industry.
