Daddy Does Retro: Media
In this episode of Daddy Does Retro, Daddy Clay (aka Clay Nichols) gets nostalgic about media. Do kids today consume more media like television, videogames and web video than their parents did? Or just a different kind of media? Us parents watched television reruns of I Love Lucy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Gilligan's Island and Leave it to Beaver. Whereas today's children watch television tailored to their tastes featuring stars like Zach and Cody and Miley Cyrus. This humorous take claims that kids back in the day watched more media like television and video games than today's kids. DadLabs Ep. 802 is brought to you by BabyBjorn.

Play Video Games With Your Kids
Burnie Burns, Co-Founder of Rooster Teeth Studios and Co-Creator of one of our favorite web shows, "Red vs. Blue," chats with Daddy Brad about video games and parenting and some of the benefits of playing video games with your kids. For many parents today, gaming has always been apart of their lives. They grew up with Nintendo, so for video games to be a part of their family life is not surprising. With the online gaming interactivity available today, gaming can be shared across the globe with family and friends. We're all for limiting screen time, but there's no reason you can't share that screen time with your children.
