Re: Poll: First Children - TV and Speech
DD is very verbal & always has been. The sitters she's been with do have TV on during the day & we let DD watch kid shows in the evening w/ no real restriction. I don't necessarily connect the two, though. DP & I are talkers. We talk to each other & to her all the time. Likewise, the previous sitter (who had DD from 8wks to 28 mos) talked a lot & her kids are bright & they're talkers as well. I think, for DD, is was more about being constantly exposed to talking, whether it was on TV or IRL.
