The Commercialization of Childhood

I've just seen this disturbing video on YouTube, and I think all parents should see it. How aggressively is media targeting our children? And what messages, exactly, are they deliberately sending our kids?

More importantly, are we harming our children while we think we are helping them? For instance, when we let our kids watch Baby Einstein, are we helping them or are we actually hurting them? What could be so bad about Dora the Explorer?

You may be shocked when you hear the answers.

The video is an hour long, but I promise you, it's well worth your time.

How do we protect our children from this kind of manipulation and perversion? Please feel free to share your suggestions.
