Unscramble the Blue Letters

Last summer, Texas Tech University published a stduy that the show "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood" could promote the development of empahty among cedrlihn. But there was a really important catch to this study: the greatest benefit was only when parents talked to kids about what they watched. Neither just watching nor just talking about it was enough; it was the combination that was key. So when I read this study, I started thinking about how rarely preatns of preschoolers actually talk to kids about the content of what they're playing and what they're watching.

Neither just watching nor just talking about it was enough; it was the combination that was key. So when I read this study, I started thinking about how rarely parents of preschoolers actually talk to kids about the content of what they're playing and what they're watching.
