In My Life.....

-----There are now breast enlargement commercials on TV in the town where I live. I don't know if this is only in the evening (or all day). I don't think that one should have to explain such to children below a certain age. Does it benefit a young child to know that people can have plastic surgery?
-----The air-conditioning in our car is trying to die. The air-conditioning in our house is trying to die.
-----Disaboom....an online community for those with disabilities.

I never had a problem explaining things like that to my son when he was little. Better he get the facts from me than convolutions from someone else. And I'd rather explain a boob job to a kid than explain all the ED commercials, and why men are sitting around together singing about Viagra...

Hi from Michele's!

Yes, I think I would find that easier to explaining the Viagra commercials. Still, I think I knew nothing about boob jobs as a child.

Me, personally, I think it all started when they let them do "feminine products" commercials. Hey, I know they exist...but do we actually have to SEE the darned things? I'm pretty sure most women know what they look like, LOL!
The commercials that always p**sed me off, though, were the ones for Clairol Herbal Essence shampoo, especially when the woman is 'freaking out' in the shower. It is very obvious what 'totally organic experience' is supposed to sound like. I can remember saying this on some message board and being told to 'lighten up.' Well, they sure changed their tune when I asked what they'd tell a 7-year-old who asked, "Mommy, why is that lady making that funny noise?" (BTW, she's 23 now. My 'baby' turns 18 on Thursday, so I don't have to switch channels like I used to do. It wasn't half as embarassing to watch commercials then as it is now--I feel sorry for you young parents. And btw, I totally love my television. But at least when you are watching a show, you expect 'adult' things. You can't always predict what a commercial will be like.)
Frankly, I have two words to describe all these 'personal' commercials..."Poor Taste"!

I never thought of this....as an adult-those commercials make me nervous. It is also especially nerve-racking if I am on an a phone call and one of these commercials starts. Some parties of society have lightened up too much.
