Zippy's Video of the Week
Father and Toddler Son Discuss TV Show

Comedian DJ Pryor and his 19-month-old son, Kingston, broke the internet last week when a video of their conversation (discussing the finale of the TV show Empire) went viral on Facebook.

While Kingston's comments are mostly gibberish, his father carries on the conversation, and allows his son to chime in as he wants. Child development experts have pointed out that father and son are demonstrating a "serve-and-return" interaction, a crucial skill for young children to learn.
