Interactive TV and Your Toddler

Numerous TV programs include characters who speak to, instruct and ask for feedback from child viewers. Research suggests that toddlers can learn more from interactive programs than more passive shows.

If your child regularly watches this type of programming, take some time to watch together and observe whether or not your child responds.


Then, ask similar questions about similar situations yourself and see if your child responds more fluently or actively to you than to the TV screen.
