Born to Buy

Published by at 11:18 pm under Uncategorized

After reading this book I am so glad that I do not have television in my house. The book gave the statistic that a child will watch 40,000 commercials in year resulting in 3,000 requests for products and services yearly. That works out to 8 requests a day! Which I guess is why 57% of children would rather spend time bugging their parents for stuff rather than spend time doing fun activities with them. This to me is just bizarre, my daughter has a birthday coming up and because she does not have TV the only thing she has asked for is a Rio (the dream works movie about a parrot) coloring book and she would be happy with just that.
