katilac Posted May 21, 2009 Share Posted May 21, 2009 I just wanted to share some info about this organization. We've been members for a while, and they do really great work trying to limit the impact of commercial culture on children. For the most part, they fight against situations that basically force-feed commercial culture to children - - students being forced to listen to certain programs/stations on the bus or in school, for example, or the numerous junky toys and tv-related items in Scholastic Book Club. They will also protest ads and products that they think promote the early sexualization of children. Sometimes I feel like my kids are just inundated with commercial culture and inappropriate ads, and we are home schoolers who don't watch a great deal of tv! It's got to be that much harder for kids in school. At any rate, it seemed like something a lot of folks on this board would be interested in, so I thought I'd share the website: http://www.commercialexploitation.org/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
