  1. Advertising is the act or practice of calling public attention to one's product, service, need, etc., esp. by paid announcements in newspapers and magazines, over radio or television, on billboards, etc. There is a lot of things could effect and influence teenager, plus teenagers are the people who are leading the society of the future, so theirs behave is highly effect on the next 10 to 15 years. So that represent the major age of 15 to 35, is highly effected. And these days, the advertising has shown the crime, sex, love, smoke, drug, etc., those unhealthy information, let kids thought it might cool to do those. So I would say, the advertising doesn't show the correct mission of it. I remember, that someone had complained me, that " I had been called 15 times today, but those were all advertising." This is absolutely represent, it had been influence people's life horribly and seriously.

  2. I think if advertising is appropriate and helpful like IRS and oter information like how to protect CALIFORNIA'S AGGRECULTURE and other natur related stuff I think it's allright to use kids in thoes advertise but if they are not inappropriate like some information about kids cancer and Mcdownald advertisement so I think it shouldn't be legal to have thoes little kids would not do that hard work and other video activities like funney videos. Over all I think its okay for kids to work in advertising if they are helpful otherwise it should be illigal and should not be display on the movie or any other places.

  3. Advertising is great business for companies without advertising their business wouldn't grow. For example McDonals, mcdonals its the biggest company that its always advertising in the world. They do advertising for everything but specially for food. If you go to a fast food restaurant and you take a look you will see all kinds of advertising and they tell you its healthy and all but actually its not, first go and check on the label and then you will see they are lying because maybe on the label it said its healthy and it has only 50 calories but when you actually take a look on the label it says 400, thats advertising. Companies do advertising to grab people attention.

  4. Yes I believe that ads for children should be banned because it could cause a lot of truoble in the future. When child sees a man smoking in the ad then they will think that smoking is alright so they would start smoking. Also buring the holidays the people up the prices an the product they saw on the ad so the parent will have to pay it for the child that wants it. What ever the children see on the T.V. ads they will minitate in really live and think that its cool to do they will hurt them selfs and the parent have to pay for it.

  5. I think that companies went to far with kids advertising, because kids don't understand how much things cost , they don't know about what their parents can affort, they just want things.That is why kids are an easy target, and that's how entrepeneurs get more income.

  6. Advertising is a form of communication used to influence individuals to purchase products or services or support political candidates or ideas. Frequently it communicates a message that includes the name of the product or service and how that product or service could potentially benefit the consumer. Advertising often attempts to persuade potential customers to purchase or to consume a particular brand of product or service. Modern advertising developed with the rise of mass production in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Some advertiing shoul not be on TV only if they contain sex or porn, and no junk food, the way all of us will be helthy for the rest of our lives.

  8. I don't think that advertising to kids be banned, because most company make money from kids. For example, cereal company make a lot of money from kids because of the kids eat cereal. Kids love cereal and sometime when they watch an advertising or something about cereal especially a nice character in a cereal box they will want that cereal. So cereal have to advertise something that will catch their attention. So i don't think that that advertising should be banned.

  9. Advertising is part of our industry. It help the economy to make money. If people got influence by the advertising, that means more taxes. They been using kids for many years to advertise. I don't think it affect our economy. Some people said, using kids in advertising is illegal. They said because it affect their education. And they said that parents use their kids to make money. And yeah parents use their kids to make money. But the question is, How are the parents going to use the money? I believe that parents is going to use the money for their kids too. I believed thats the education, and the things they need to lived.

  10. I like how sterling wrote his comment and he had prove his point about kids advertising. I think Victor had to write some more about this so he can prove his point. I think he did not understand this topic really well.
