What affect does advertising have on children?
Advertising and media does have an effect on children since many companies spend millions of dollars convincing kids that their product is the best and coolest thing out there, but what also lies in the way is the fact that it can also affects how kids look at themselves and can affect self esteem and image as well. The above is a general idea and does not effect all children in the same way, depending on a child's primary and secondary socialisation and indeed the environment they have been bought up in will also effect how effect an advert is on a child; children from countries where advertising is shown to children are less likely to grow in to adults who believe entirely in an advert and therefore creates a much more consumer savvy market when said child reaches an age where they have a disposable income of there own.
it has good and bad effects.
