Highly Recommended: Consuming Kids
I suggest that everyone who has a kid or works with kids watch this video: when I saw it, it completely explained a good 95% of the problems I have in dealing with children today. It's a fascinating documentary about the way advertisers are targeting kids, encouraging and enticing them to get their parents to buy, and how it affects child behavior, attention spans, attitudes, and learning skills. Part 1 is embedded here. The rest of the parts are all available on YouTube.
