Should advertising be banned for children under 11?
Read more about this story from the BBC -
“Jonathan Kent says research has linked growing commercial pressures on children to higher rates of depression, lower self-esteem and to mental health problems but that it is very difficult to prove such a link.
“The tobacco industry managed to argue for years that cigarettes don’t cause harm. Proving causality is difficult, especially when it’s in an area as complex and nebulous as psychology,” he said.
“Most parents will know instinctively that their children are deeply affected by advertising. They’ll also know that children now are far more materialistic than children were 20 or 40 years ago.”“
Look at the BBC website for the full story and associated links.
Do some research yourself on the library catalogue and via ‘Discover’ to see the discussions about the psychological effects of advertising.
