Should there be a ban on television advertisements aimed at children?

I don't see the point of banning all advertisements as that would destroy the advertising industry. But I think that the advertisements should be filtered...so that things suited for a more adult audience (ex. Trojan condoms, Ultra tampons/pads etc.) and be aired in the middle of a show suited for older viewers.

So basically, have commercials that would be appropriate to the age group show it interrupts. Hopefully, there won't be any condom commercials when i'm watching my Barney. lol but that's just my two cents.

What's wrong with targeting children in advertisements? What's the argument against it? I can't remember hearing about these kind of ads being a problem.

Why would you ban advertisements aimed at kids? I mean, if your target audience is children, then you need to advertise to them. How are you going to sell video games if no one knows about them. Plus, something needs to fill the space where advertisements go on kids channels, so other advertisements would have to go there which are aimed at adults. Now, if they are alcohol advertisements aimed at kids, yeah, those should be banned. And other stuff similar to alcohol, like cigarettes and other things that kids shouldn't have. Those advertisements should not target children because children should not be buying those things.

Why would they ban them ? I mean... if they'd ban them, they wouldn't make money. Because when kids see those commercials where other kids have fun they'd also want there. Also, not all of the commercials are that bad. Some are actually good at something. They may influence the children's mind in some way. Hopefully in a good one (WARY).

Anyways... I don't think they should be banner. I think commercials should last less at TV XD ! I would actually like to see a movie without 30 commercials every 15 mins appearing ! I am exaggerating, but you got my point. When they say that a movie lasts 2 hours they also count the commercials, which are about 30 min >_>. Am I right or not ?

I reckon that banning ad targetted towards children is a complete waste of time. Most children has to tell their parents to buy them things anyway, so its usually up to the parents whether they want to buy it or not. Besides, if the ads are banned, children would not be informed about new and latest products, such as new games, toys, clothing etc. If the children arent informed about the latest products, they probably wont buy them, and if they dont buy them, the country's economy would be sure to drop.

Attempting to keep this alive, it isnt right to ban advertisements towards children, first of all, our slander, drug, and sex commercials is banned. Commercials are mean't to be influential. Children's commercials are supported with Child Psychology. A way of reaching them, even Barney has types of pediatric psychology. If you prevented this millions of companies targeting children they would decrease. Im sure 97% of these did not influence any child to attempt drugs, only made them spoiled ear-rapes.

You all mad? How do you guys expect luapman to make money from this site without advertising? If advertising was free, luapman wouldn't make any money.
