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.

My parents sometimes tell me memories about when I was five or six years old, they used to say that every time the ads show up on the TV screen, I was hooked to them like glue and that I just liked commercial breaks more than the actual program itself. Targeted ones were no exception, I used to learn every company name and logo even though I couldn't read Also I used to get information about new stuff. I personally disagree with the fact that advertising toward young children should not be allowed and I will provide two reasons in the subsequent paragraphs to support it. Firstly, Knowing about different stuff made for children can help the family decide what is best for their toddler. Distinguishing between the good and bad toys and kid's products is very important since there are many of them out there that don't have the expected function. For example, when I was 4 years old, I saw a commercial about an educational toy that taught alphabet in an amusing method to children and I asked my parents to purchase it for me. It turned out that it helped me a lot in my preschool days. Secondly, Children's commercials are actually fun and entertaining. Even though they might sound boring to adults, they are often built musical and with a plot in order to make it more attractive for their audience which is children. For example, My parents used to record this commercials from day to day, and later on, they merged these recordings together to create a long commercial video. Every time they wanted to keep me busy to get some work done, they sat me in front of the screen and play that video for me and I remember having a really fun time singing along and dancing. In conclusion, I personally believe that TV commercials with kids as the target should be allowed since they are a good way to raise awareness about the latest efficient products and they are also considered a form of entertainment for children.
