The power of advertisting is something that shouldn’t be underestimated. It targets some of the most vulnerable target groups such as impressionable children or impulsive women. Some of the most powerful advertisements are those featuring fast food ads which often feature a little free toy which comes with the child’s meal. That usually results in children clamouring their parents for a toy as seen on tv regardless of the price or nutritional content of the fast food. So it’s always very important to have self control and to teach your children wisely to be not so easily fooled by advertisements.
