Hey Kids, You're a Target!

BusRadio is already in 11 states, including my own. They play commercial radio to a captive young adult audience as they ride the bus to school. There is no FCC control over their service (Payola anyone?). Bus Radio’s service and stance is just another example of corporations using kids as target markets.

The Commcerical Exploitation website I have linked to is a great tool for parents who are concerned, disturbed and outraged by their surroundings. If you are even somewhat of like-mind, proceed with caution…your blood pressure is sure to rise.

Has there ever been a more difficult time to raise a happy, healthy and interesting child?

A recent article from CNN discusses findings that, (guess what!) TV Ads help push kids down a slippery slope of eating disorders, drinking and sex!

Yeah, The Modern World!
