La Texican Posted July 20, 2012 Share Posted July 20, 2012 The hubs just told me he saw it on the news that consumers have sued Your Baby Can Read out of business. Why do you think that is? Can you sue a diet pill if you don't look like the before and after photo? I made the mistake on another forum of saying that using "your baby can read" was like teaching a dog tricks, not like reading instruction with the phonics and the dolche words. I was judging by the commercials only. I never bought the program. I did buy Hooked on Phonics and Reading Eggs and they did the trick in a total of two years. Was that the problem? I'm thinking some parents bought it and expected it to take less than a year or two doing lessons 3x a week. Even the schools take all of two or three years to get kids reading. Were the parents just being impatient? How is that a lawsuit? Is it just because they made SO many sales that's what opened them up to being sued? Some people call their kids reading if they read sentences made out of cvc words. Some people call their children reading when they combine memorization with prediction in the Dr. Seuss rhymes and ez readers. Some people don't call their kids reading until they can read whatever you put in front of them or a third grade chapter book. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
