Are your children influenced by ads?

Posted by   + Show Post

I know that as a child I wanted what I saw advertized on tv, My children didn't watch commercial tv until they were older. What about your children?

My children want everything they see on tv.

To a point. If my daughter sees something that looks cool, she'll mention that she really wants it for her birthday or Christmas but by the time those two come, she's already forgotten everything she thought she wanted, as do I. More often than not she's asking if we can skip through the commercials though.

I think they could be without good guidance at home.

Mine watched only certain programs and I talked to them often about the purpose of commercials. They weren't influenced much.

Of course.  i use it as a teaching moment about how comericals usually are not true or at least make things look way better than they are.  By the time my boys were 8 or 9 they were very savy about ads.

This is hilarious! Perhaps he'll go into the advertising field.
