Oh Gee. Won't they won't do to push their drugs, vaccines, etc.

My sister has her 9 year old and 8 year old on allergy meds. I forgot which one.

If I popped a pill every time I sneezed, I would be so stoned!! I just up my vitamin c, my clo and go on with life.

How sad! It seems to me that children are the victims of so much marketing, even in what seems to be innocent things like book, and so-called educational tools.

I think that this is a sad reflection of a society in which all our problems can be cured by popping a pill, and all of our problems must have a simple, fast solution not requiring any real time, effort or self-discipline.

That just goes to show why books, shows and movies must be carefull screened before we place them into our children's lives.

Ok...I'm off my soapbox now.
