Posted by: | 21 Comments

No doubt our children are growing up in a digital and connected world. Smartphones, computers and portable gaming devices are all around them since they are born.  Rather than shield them, I advocate for teaching them the best use of technology. I do carry an iPhone with me and I don´t know what I did before it. I have a great collection of apps that keep my daughter entertained while in the car during long drives or at moments whenRead More ...

We {heart} Pocoyó {Giveaway}

We really do.  The proof is that, over a year ago, we chose a Pocoyó video in Spanish, El Baile de Pocoyó, as our very first Video of the Week.  I can still remember the dancing parties my girl, husband and I would have in the living room when Pocoyó came on (We record it from Discovery Familia.

Posted by: | 2 Comments

Pocoyó-El Gran Tobogán We are obsessed with Pocoyó…we truly are.  We actually have a little ritual we call “La Hora de Bailar” where we put on El Baile de Pocoyó and our little dictator of a toddler makes both papá and mamá stand up in front of the screen, holds both of our hands and has us jumping and dancing with her and Pocoyó.  You could call it cute;  I´m not so sure. ...

Basically, every expert on the subject agrees that if you want your child to learn a new  language, just exposing them to “educational” media in that language won’t-on its own-increase their chances of learning it.
