I have 2 kids and there minds are like litmus paper they take in everything even if you think they missed it, they didn't I am also a believer in the fact that people are very much shaped by what they see and do everyday.Apples marketing campaign is a good example placing apple pcs in many films ect.
I don't like the way it is shoved down kids necks but then I don't like the way fashion, adverts, sex and violence are also.
Most people wouldn't say they have been shaped by whats around them but I assure you you have been shaped to think the way you do
buy the things you do watch the things you do ect ect to a point.
Television is a very powerful tool or adverts would not exist. Darren Brown did a great example of how powerful adverts are placing adverts on bill boards on the route his target would take the target took them in and didn't even know. So until my kids have a basic understanding of life at around about 10 years I will try not to expose them to it all. Kids grow up to fast these days they don't even get to be kids I see many parents who use there kids as a stastus symbol and on the other hand many who have nothing and no morals, where it will all lead no one can tell.
What you do in your own home is up to you unless it harms another is my opinion. To me life is like domino's all stood up in lines then one pushed..... one thing can and will in some way effect the other.
