The rights of all children must be protected against harassment or invasion of their personal rights at such a vulnerable age. Our past is littered with blatant disregard by the advertising industry by their very clever brain-washing techniques on our children. Sadly, our lawmakers in Washington have allowed these practices to go by as "perfectly legal" for way to many years. Now proposed voluntary guidelines are ready to be voted on to limit the past pushy advertising by the industry. Obesity among our children are at epidemic proportions in the general population of the United States and this social problem must be controlled.
