    Nice tune, soothing voice, platitudinous words...what's not to like?
    Meanwhile, a 4 year old has unrestricted access to the net? Really?

    his computer has a family filter but as you say nothing overtly offensive in this video and as much as possible I do prefer to let him develop his own self censorship rather than create forbidden fruit syndromes..allowing him independence in selecting what interest him and the process of discovering new things it has been an excellent motivation for him to learn to spell and type words ...so while I would not call it unrestricted access,,;he has his own computer with his stuff on it and works it pretty good and can go nuts on his google searches with the family filter on and explore. its interesting to see what they choose

    At FOUR?
    Okay, I raised free range children myself, and he shares, so there's room to discuss. Smart fucking kid you got there, by the way. I was still trying (and failing) to convey the concept of gravity (don't walk off the porch, coffee table, dresser) to mine at 4. Turned out alright, both of them (22 and 18), but it was touch and go at times. I am pleased with the results though, and I never filtered their exposure either, although we didn't hive computers when they were that young (DIRT poor). We did discuss television though, and I would walk into a room to tell them that THAT wasn't a representation of reality.

    Just because he wipes his ass with his hand doesn't necessarily make him a muslim.
