Educational programs hinder the development of children under two years of age

Text: Snezhana Shabanova/Infox.ru

published Jan 14 ‘09 14:40

Watching television programs can slow down the development of the child. Even if the baby is watching special "developing" children's programs. Psychologists summarized the results of many studies over 25 years.

Often their acquaintance with the “blue screen” is started by the parents themselves, who buy special discs with educational programs for the little ones. Or they are simply trying to distract babies with flashing pictures to free themselves of time. According to statistics, more than 90% of children regularly start watching TV before they are two years old.

Professor Dimitri Christakis, who works at the Seattle Children's Research Institute and the University of Washington, reviewed the results of 78 studies he and his colleagues have conducted over the past 25 years.

Christakis and his colleagues found out during a study in 2004-2006 that children spend an average of 3-6 hours a day watching TV. It takes more time than any other activity except sleep. At the same time, as the professor emphasizes, the study used only the estimates of parents, who are not always able to accurately determine how much their child actually spends watching TV. Scientists have found that the child has an average of an hour and a half of “uncontrolled” communication with the TV. nine0005

A simple calculation shows that if a two-year-old child sleeps 10-12 hours a day, then it takes him about 30--40% of his waking time to communicate with the "blue screen".

In addition, in 2006, Christakis found that 30% of preschoolers and 75% of teenagers have a TV in their room. Sociologists have calculated that back in 1971, the average age of the first acquaintance with the TV was almost 4 years, and today it is 5 months.

It's true that babies weren't put in front of screens until 1997, but it was at this time that housewife Julie Aigner-Clark came up with a line of video products for the "development" of very tiny children, which was then bought by The Walt Disney Company and brought to the market called Baby Einstein. nine0005

In the past 11 years, "TV for babies" has become a lucrative industry. In the US alone, DVD sales for toddlers bring in $500 million annually. According to Christakis, the introduction of new products to the market is due to the "pretense of education" that has become popular in recent years. Even the names of the programs (Baby Einstein, Brainy Baby) hint that they can affect the cognitive abilities of babies. Numerous advertising texts promise that "the baby will simultaneously begin to develop language and logic, analysis and much more." This marketing strategy pays off. The study, published by Christakis and colleagues in 2007, looked at 1,000 families. It turned out that the main reason that makes parents drop babies in front of a TV screen is "it's good for their brain." More than 29 think so% of respondents.

But an earlier study by a Sydney professor and colleagues confirmed that baby video manufacturers' claims about the educational properties of their product are unfounded. Scientists have found that manufacturers are guided only by the feedback of parents - their personal impression of the programs - and not on a scientific basis.

Christakis cites the statistics he collected. If at the age of three months the TV is turned on for 25% of children, then by the age of two years more than 80% of babies watch it. And 21% of parents say that the child watching TV literally “unties their hands”. nine0005

One of the main objectives of the educational video is to teach the child to speak as early as possible. But scientists have found that a child better remembers the pronunciation of words that he heard from a "live" teacher. The same voice recorded on tape produces a much worse result. And the results of a 2007 study of 1,000 children aged 7-16 months found no benefit from early language learning by watching television.

Christakis and colleagues conducted a study of another group of children aged 7 to 16 months. It turned out that children who watched speech-developing programs at this age knew much fewer words than the children from the control group, who were not taught in this way. Every hour of viewing "ate" about 6-8 words. Although the conclusions of the researchers are cautious. They believe they may have confused cause and effect. Say, parents, concerned about the poor development of their children, began to “stuff” them with developmental products. Although what words parents can expect to hear from their child is unclear. nine0005

And researchers from Bangkok compared 110 normal children and 56 babies with speech delay at the age of 15-48 months. Scientists interviewed their parents, scrupulously finding out all the conditions in which the children developed. It turned out that children who were found to have a delay in the development of speech began watching TV at the age of about 7 months. Their "normal" peers first saw the "blue screen" at 12 months. In addition, the former watched TV for at least three hours a day, while the latter watched less than two. Scientists have calculated that a child who starts watching TV before the age of one and sits in front of it for more than 2 hours a day is six times more likely to experience speech development problems. nine0005

Psychologists from the University of Pennsylvania have already approached the problem - they checked how children are affected by specific TV shows. 51 children and their parents were invited for the study. From the age of 6 months, children watched the popular "educational" programs in the USA. A child development report was taken every three months.

It turned out that there are programs that really improve the knowledge of the language, for example, "Dasha the Pathfinder". But after "Teletubbies" and "Sesame Street", the vocabulary and expressiveness of the language in the children who watched them developed worse compared to the control group. nine0005

“Nevertheless,” Christakis continues, “television is replacing young children with more important activities at their age: games and communication with parents.” The professor considers this problem a political one. And he says that, first of all, regulation of the market for the sale of "developing" video programs is required.
