They overlook the positive side and concentrate more on the negatives. •Many advertisements in the present times include dangerous stunts, which can be performed only by experts. Even though the commercials broadcast the statutory warnings with the ad, the kids often try to imitate the stunts at home, with fatal results. •The flashy advertisements broadcast in television generate impulse shopping in children. •Children, after watching the glitter of commercials, often lose the ability to live a life without materialistic joy. •The kids usually get more attracted towards the costly branded products, such as jeans and accessories. They disregard the inexpensive, but useful, ones that are not shown in the commercials. •Advertisements have an indirect effect on the behavior of children. They might develop temper tantrums, when deprived of the latest toys and clothes that are shown in the commercials. •The personal preferences in clothing, toys, food and luxurious of children are altered by the advertisements, to a great extent. •Junk foods, such as pizzas, burgers and soft drinks, are heavily promoted during children's TV viewing time.
