Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The cynical view would say that children are subjected to 'advertising' from the moment they are born. Their parents impose all sorts of limited choices upon children - of products and produce, behaviour and values. A child's life is daily parental product placement.

"The problem with kids today" is that the commercial advertising to which they are subjected from an early age interferes with parental and educational marketing.

I think children should not only be taught the evils of advertising, but all hidden persuasion.

You can't be me, I'm taken
