If the chorus I love you, You love me makes you cringe, or if you're a new mom dying for a few minutes of peace, you can finally let the TV do the babysitting with these guilt-free videos. Kids First!, a nonprofit arm of the Coalition for Quality Children's Media, has updated the easy-to-use A Parent's Guide to the Best Children's Videos, DVDs & CD-ROMS with a second edition that includes more than 1,800 kid-tested and adult-approved titles. A panel of jurors 3,000 children from diverse backgrounds and 300 child development specialists watched thousands of videos to come up with a selection of kid-friendly entertainment free of violence, negative stereotypes and sex. Broken down by age group and category, the video encyclopedia presents a vast resource for popular favorites like Teletubbies, Blue's Clues and Dr. Seuss, along with tons of educational flicks like Yoga for Kids and Fraction Attraction. Whether your child is an infant or a teenager, you can banish Barney and pick quality videos the whole family can watch together.
