My kids won't be taking tests anyway -- but...

Thank you, Slate, for relieving my Parenting magazine-induced guilt with this article about the flaws in research that claims television turns kids' brains to mush -- and the actual evidence that shows the opposite.

I second that thank you Amanda!! Anything can be harmful to kids, if used in the wrong ways. My kids actually learn from some programs. And, they always know what is real and what is just tv. My brother used to wear Superman pj's, and run all over the house, with his cape flying behind him. But, he never tried to jump off the roof and actually fly, cause my mom taught us real from fiction. I'll stop here, as I could go on and on with this one. haha
