Help! I don't have time!
Teaching babies used to be a time-heavy commitment, with parents having to make their own flash cards and other materials.
These days, high-quality books, DVDs and software-based programs mean parents can start their babies learning with no lesson preparation. Meanwhile, the lessons themselves can take as little as five minutes per day.
While DVD-based programs can play a useful role in babies learning, you should resist the urge to use the TV as an "electronic babysitter." For more on making TV use safe and beneficial for babies, read our TV FAQs.
Help! I don't know where to start!
With so much information available about maximizing babies' learning, it can be tough to know where to begin. Whether you're a first-time parent, a working parent, or both, you can get some much-needed help from our Teaching Babies Survival Kit. The kit contains tips on where to begin, a summary of the teaching methods available, and the BrillKids Seven-Day Lesson Sampler.
