There's also no reason why the T2i cannot/should not be used to make home videos of kids! Why not?! That's absurd!

Here is the main reason, sans any absurdities:

Kids move around fast and T2i has very slow AF. An inexperienced user will have lots of problems, i.e. the countless posts by novices saying their DSLR takes lousy videos.

Beginners shooting video of kids and pets are better off with a cheap, dedicated auto camcorder or flip. DSLR video is for more experienced users, who understand DOF, manual focus, etc.
