In case you don't have a television, I am talking about the Your Baby Can Read learning program. It is supposed to do just as the title says, teach your baby to read. The commercial shows babies clapping when the word clap is shown to them and so on. Then it shows toddlers reading.
Jazlyn knows her letters and most sounds. She can't read. As this commercial came on today I wondered how it makes her feel. She knows that she can't read yet so when she sees a baby reading I wonder if that is a blow to her self esteem. Maybe she doesn't comprehend it. I'm not sure, but I don't want to bring it up to find out. Anyone else with an older child who can't read ever thought about this?
If anyone has ever tried Your Baby Can Read or if your best friend's mom's cousin's daughter has tried it please let me know if it is legit or not.
