Babies are smarter

Interesting article.

http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/23/opinion/gopnik-ted-children-learning/index.html?hpt=hp_c2

I have always said that babies learn faster and know more than we can ever imagine. They have to learn quickly how to process their evironment, even if they cannot physically use language to express what they have learned. There are days I wonder why I didn't focus on doing research with babies and toddlers. It has always been something I enjoy.

It's never too late to start. Smile

I agree, it's prettt amazing what a baby can truly comprehend. TLC (or maybe Discovery) did a show about it. I wish I rembered what it was called, but it was SO cool! They did a lot of those studies, like with the crackers and veggies with all sorts of stuff and showed what the babies understoond. It was facinating. I think there was 3 or 4 shows. When I think of it, I'll tell you the name. I remember I rented the videos from somewhere.. Man. I wish I could remember it.

Okay... I think it was this. I can't find a video clip to make sure though. http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Human-Geniuses-in-Diapers/dp/B000127IG6

I either rented the vidoes from the library or from Netflicks. But it was neat and worth the watch. Biggrin
