This paper discusses the specific roles that children play in society. It looks at it through the social constructions people have of children and discusses the way that children affect culture whether it is by advertisements or through the ideologies that children have. The paper also looks at the reasons why children are important in a society.
From the Paper:"More parents must take their ideology even when it is difficult to tell their children no. Children should not be empowered to do whatever they want or to receive all the things they want. Parents must be the dominant ones. The media may use a form of hegemony to get the attention of children, but it is the parents place to refuse their children at times. Parents must be able to take the gazes that their children have and let them know who does have the power. Otherwise, more children will become unproductive adults who have little knowledge of responsibility or how rough life can be. In your family, who has the ideology?"
