It attempts to analyze the harm that such advertisements cause in the minds of these young children and how it impacts them in their behavioral patterns.

Thesis Statement

From the Paper:

"Today, it is an undeniable fact that advertising has increased in various forms, everywhere, and in direct proportion, controversial advertising has also increased, leading one to fear for the mental safety and health of the children of the nation, and others who can be easily influenced by external factors. Perhaps the reason for the increased advertising is that today, society has become more complex than it ever was, and has also, an increased awareness of the harmful effects of advertising certain products on general media, and also the need for advertisers to cut through the so called 'clutter' that other advertisers have created, in advertising their products."
