Parents that can't say no to their kids begging toy makers to stop advertising.

Parents need to be parents and turn off the stupid TV and start interacting with their children if the advertisments are sooooo terrible.

I also suspect this as a false story.

I grew up in a middle class to sometimes upper middle class family. Every year we’d ask Santa for way too much crap for Christmas and every year we got some (maybe most) but not all of it. Somehow we survived w/o getting everything we wanted.

It also shows how maybe the best gift you can give is cash. Let the kids see how much stuff really costs, and then see how much they really need when it’s “their money” that’s being spent.
