Quoting Mara:" you haven't. some kids need more stimulation than a book, they're little animals w/ a lot of energy ... [snip!] ... commercials is horrible these days, and i'd rather kids were exposed to slower simpler videos rather than the insanity of tv. "OMG I HATE commercials. I just got my kids Nabi tablets to get some more stuff to do with homeschool (overall we love them BTW) and I never expected an app to have a commercial, but it did & it was for toilet paper of all things. Then I get my almost 6 yr old at the store telling me, "We should but THIS toilet paper mom, it can hold a penny even when it's wet". ONE commercial, for TP of all things, as if a 6 yr old should even care. It just goes to show how quickly they star to impact what we think we want or need.
