Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Television advertising directed toward young children (aged two to five) should not be allowed. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

It is critically important to be aware of what our children are confronted during their childhood. In my view, Advertisement should be banned from children because of two major reasons which I will explore in the following essay. To begin with, children do not have sufficient understanding in order to distinguish what would be good for them or what would not. So they easily will absorb the advertisement, especially when comes the cartoon types of advertisement. They will not account for other aspects of the product advertised. For instance, Consider a child which is watching tv and an advertisement will show up and It is talking about ice cream and so on. So the only thing the child would think about the product is delicious for them and he would not really think about the cost of the product or the healthiness. In conclusion, Two major reasons get my attention to say I agree to ban advertisement for children.
